Dwarfs ATTACK! Jack Kirby Nightmare Comics Get Even Weirder

Jack Kirby sure went wild when he got to play around with the topic of dreams and nightmares. Some of his freakiest work can be seen in the pages of The Strange World of Your Dreams.

The Dark Side - Mort Meskin Goes Gothic in this Inky Nightmare Comic

LOOK in the doorway Kirby gothic horror
An interesting change of pace in this last dream story from The Strange World of Your Dreams #1

I just learned from Ger Appledorn and Steven Brower (after mis-attributing this story to Kirby/Meskin) that Mort Meskin was the co-creator of this comic series with Jack Kirby, and that it's Mort Meskin's art that brings this story to life!

This story breaks the usual format and tells a self-contained tale without the ever-present dream analyst Richard Temple. This poor guy is left to wander his inky dreamscape alone. I love the evocative shadows and inking in this story (Steven Brower suggests that George "Inky" Roussos was the inker).

Anyway -- to me, the panel below is the creepiest drawing in the whole story...

Here's the whole tale below. Pleasant dreams!
