Demon #12 - Rebirth of Evil

Kirby's riff off Frankenstein continues. First there's a flashback to Etrigan's old encounter with the original Baron Von Rakenstein and his creatures years in the past. Great double page spread of the assorted beasties. Back in the modern day, we see that the Demon didn't quite manage to wipe out the Rakenstein evil, as the modern Baron has inherited his ancestor's instruments and has Jason Blood prisoner and plans to put his head on the creature's body.

Fortunately Blood transforms before the cut can be made, and frees the creature, who also has a telepathic link to a psychic girl who Harry and Randu went for help in finding Jason.

Mike Royer inks the cover and 20-page story.

Published 1973
