The Son Of Satan in: Madhouse!



Here's a fantastic lost masterpiece from The Son Of Satan's original series, as Steve Gerber & Gene Colan do their own version of The Exorcist, with the added attraction that Daimon, of course, knows all the demons of his father's domain personally. If there is a minus, it's that Frank Chiaramonte is possibly not the most sympathetic inker Gene ever had, but that's nitpicking. This is pure brilliance, through and through.

  1. This is great to end up the Holy Week, Pete. How about posting that memorable DC story about a giant pasque rabbit devouring some children? That would be ideal for pasque!

  2. "Hoppin down the bunny trail" that's the title. The ending is hilarious!

  3. I don't think I've seen this rabbit-chowing-down-kids story... but I want to.

    And it is testament to Colan's power as a master draftsman that not even Chiaramonte's lacklaster inking ability can squash it. Although there are a couple issues of DOCTOR STRANGE where he comes close.

    Gerber & Colan: Man, what a team they were.

  4. They so were. No one else ever made this concept work.
