Secret Files of Dr. Drew-Jerry Grandenetti-1949

THE SECRET FILES OF DR. DREW gets a bit of a chuckle from TV watchers familiar with the current "Doctor Drew" but it was actually quite a marvelous series reportedly developed by Will Eisner but handed off completely to his assistants Marilyn Mercer and Jerry Grandenetti. That said. they handled the 14 stories in this RANGERS COMICS series in such a way that one would swear it was done by Eisner! Although oft-reprinted, I couldn't help but share these two again as these are the two reprinted in GHOST COMICS in 1954 in an attempt to cash in on the horror craze that followed the series original run. Some of THE best drawn strips of their day.

I had to look twice to make sure this wasn't actually done by Eisner or Jack Cole! That's some nice Spirit-style storytelling there. Would you mind if I reposted this on my blog?
