The Demon #13 [1973] – The Night of the Demon


Kirby concludes his three part story based on Frankenstein in this issue, as Etrigan destroys the lab of Baron von Evilstein, setting his experimental beasts free. Meanwhile, Randu and Harry manage to get the girl Janie, who has a psychic link with Evilstein’s monster, close to where the gentle creature is being tormented by a mob. Unfortunately Evilstein shows up and attacks, and the creature dies saving his only friend.


Etrigan of course takes the fight to Evilstein, and uses the Philosopher’s Stone against him.

I thought this storyline had a bit more potential than this final chapter realized, but I always do like the classic Kirby mis-understood beast archetype.

Mike Royer inks the cover and 20-page story.
