LADY SATAN II "What is Evil, and What is Not?"

We learned the origin of the first Black anti-heroine HERE... let's continue her never-reprinted, all-too brief (and uncompleted) saga, as she researches the story of Tituba, the Black servant whom Salem residents thought was a witch back in the 1600s...
Written by Al Hewetson (under the pen-name "Howie Anderson") and illustrated by Ricardo Villamonte, this never-reprinted tale from Skywald's b/w magazine Scream #3 (1973) presents an extremely-exaggerated version of historical events during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692-93.

    I've been doing a lot of research into comics from Brazil, and you might wanna check out some of those things (if you can find them). Editora Outubro / Taika, Editora D-Arte and otherS had some interesting female characters, among them "MIRZA, A Mulher Vampiro", who debuted a year or more before Warren's "VAMPIRELLA". What i find facainting is, in MIRZA's case, every single one of her appearances was illustrated by the same guy-- Eugenio Colonnese (possibly the best of the Brazillian artists I've found).

    Meanwhile, I've been trying to compile every EDGAR ALLAN POE comics adaptation in one place. Ricardo Villan\monte did 5 of those for Skywald, and I have ALL of 'em at my blog!

    Skywald did 19 of these, and would have done 20 but closed up too soon. "THE NARRATIVE OF ARTHUTR GORDON PYM" was adapted by Al Hewetson & Cesar Lopez Vera. Reports differ as to if it ever saw the light of day, but if anyone could furnish me with scans, I'd really appreciate it!
