Number 1805: Hooray for Halloween Horror: The Body Maker
The artist is Warren Kremer, who does a marvelous job with what is actually kind of a silly story. (She’s not a natural blonde? Well, just keep kidnapping and killing 'em until you find one!) Kremer (born 1921) had a long career as a comic book artist, starting in the 1940s, and going until his death in 2003. He is probably most famous for drawing Casper the Friendly Ghost, Wendy the Good Little Witch, Richie Rich, etc., for Harvey Comics. But his work for Harvey goes back to their pre-Code horror comics. He designed covers, and he did occasional horror stories. If nothing else, he might be one of the most versatile comic artists ever.
