Ernie Colon is great. Jan. 2 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A master of the comic book form! Heard about him from the podcast "Art and Story" I especially recommend for aspiring comics artists who want to study unconventional page layouts.

Pretty good little collection Dec 30 2011

Colon's an old master at horror, having worked on Warren's Creepy & Eerie back in the day. His work on these stories shows he is as good as ever. Some of the stories will remind you of EC Comics, others of Warren and still others' DC's 'mystery' titles. There's nothing bad here and all are entertaining. Recommended.

I really love the OTR show "Inner Sanctum." I think the horror/mystery shows have held up the best since their original broadcasts--what scares people back then still scares us now. So, I thought the idea of Ernie Colon adapting some of these stories for comics was pretty cool.

I fondly remember Colon's work for DC Comics--including his "Arak, Son of Thunder" with Roy Thomas and his own creation "Amethyst, Princess of Gem World." But mainly I remember him from Warren's horror titles like "Creepy," "Eerie," and "Vampirella."

Colon adapted seven stories for "Inner Sanctum." Some I have heard before, and some were unfamiliar. They all have that "Inner Sanctum" feel, and Colon is clearly someone who remembers being scared by that old creaking door. His art work is still solid, although not stunning. He seems to have lost some of his flair over the years and gone into a more minimalistic style. His loose, empty lines almost look like fashion illustration instead of comic book art. He isn't big on backgrounds, and most of his work features characters carrying the scenes. He still has that horror touch though, and that comes through nicely.

What I thought was really missing from this comic was more about "Inner Sanctum" itself. It's wrong to assume that most people will be familiar with the show, it's history, and these episodes. I would have loved a nice, long introduction, and some "Adapted from ... " or "First broadcast ... " notes on the stories. Instead they are presented without preamble. And that's all right. They work well just as stories. But I think it was a bit of a missed opportunity.

The stories in this collection are:

"The Voice on the Wire"
"Lived Once-Buried Twice"
"The Undead"
"The Horla"
"Alive in the Grave"
"Death of a Doll"
