Keywords: Freak. Blindness. Witch hunt.
Synopsis: Frankensteinish creature with a mind of a child makes his first human contact and finds only hostility. Blind old lady tries to help him.
Comment: Corben's colors in this story are not so successful, specially green forest is messy. Burning witch is exceptionally efective and it reminds Corben's early work "Tales from the Plague". Greg Potter's story is dull; it is the worst chapter of a serial of the child creature, though it is "loyal" for original Frankenstein story (keeping its own inside-logic).
Alternatives, Vers.2: Poorly scanned from magazine.
Alternatives, Vers.3: Restored with piety by José Villarrubia.
