Synopsis: A rich but ugly countess Maleva wants to steel a girl’s beauty. She forces sorcerer Darman to do the spell, and as a reward she jails him into a cave with dead frozen beauty.
Comment: Brilliant artwork and storytelling by Corben. Ugly Maleva is specially “goodlooking”.
Alternatives: In a place of Cousin Creepy they put Uncle Eerie (in Eerie version, because prob. there was Cousin Creepy in original story, I haven’t seen), which is not drawn by Richard Corben.
