My Images of Halloween One

Halloween has changed a lot since I was a kid. I want to spend a little time posting images and reflections on the season as the days go by. This is the introductory panel from an old issue of Plop! that as children we always felt was very evocative of the holiday spirit. It features those three tale-spinners Cain, Abel, and Eve, and was drawn by the great Sergio Aragones. The old house, the dark sky, the suggestion of wind and leaves, the apprehensive look on the bird's face contrasting the ghoulish glee of the creepy trio, all conjure up the Halloween mood of old.
