Continuing with the philosophy that only artists that did work for EC were any good, and of those artists, everything they did was a masterpiece, until 1955 when Kurtzman left MAD, comes this story. A lot of the stories from the comics my father took pages from as a kid were by Howard Nostrand for Harvey. He didn't do any work for EC, but my father thought he was Jack Davis. Their work does look a bit alike, but it's not as if Nostrand sat down and decided to imitate Davis and was hired for that reason. Or maybe it was. I can't ask him since he died at least 20 years ago. From WITCHES' TALES #19 around 1953 and because tonight is Walpurgisnacht, here's this comic.
