DARK MANSION OF FORBIDDEN LOVE #1 by Charles Guthrie

 
Charles Guthrie has been drawing monsters, super-heros and goofy characters since opening his first comic book as a child. Although much of his cartoon and illustration work is for younger children, he spends his spare time drawing absurd humor strips for various publications. Comics from the 40s, 50s and 60s have always been a great influence - weird and wonderful, with faded pages and the nostalgic scent of second-hand dust. His website is www.guthrie.nl
Charles says: DC has made some fantastic comics, but "The Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love" is such a great name for a strip, the choice was easy.
Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love was edited by Dorothy Woolfolk, Ethan C.Mordden, Joe Orlando, E.Nelson Bridwell and Denny O'Neill. Read more...

  1. Well, it's no Sinister House of Secret Love, but it'll do.

  3. Thanks for the comments (and the Hernandez Brothers are great - don't have a lot of their stuff, but love the style).

    "Dimly-lit Duplex of Unmentionable Affection" would have been nice, too.

  4. I've said I wasn't that keen on anthology series, but maybe I'm just sick of the old horror tales. Mixing them up with romance comics has yet to be done though, and this would fit very well next to my collections of Vertigo's Weird War Tales and Gangland.

    Would read? If it's a mini-series or keeps being inventive.
