Occult Files Of Doctor Spektor: Volume 1 (2010)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
01.21.11

Occult Files Of Doctor Spektor: Volume 1 (2010) This was one of my comic book series to read as a kid, along with companion titles DAGAR THE INVINCIBLE and TRAGG AND THE SKY GODS. Volume One here reprints issues #1-7 as well as his very first appearance in MYSTERY COMICS DIGEST #5.

Doctor Spektor explores tales of the weird and supernatural and keeps files on these events. Sometimes he simply introduces a story, sort of like Rod Serling, or is a part of that story. He is assisted by his Native American secretary, Lakota Rainflower. Their first case together is CULT OF THE VAMPIRE, then it's a ghost/revenge story. In THE MUMMY'S SOUL, they encounter a living mummy and in DR SPEKTOR AND MR. HYDE, Robert Louis Stevenson's character. They also encounter Frankenstein's monster and in the most interesting story, which actually connects Spektor to ancestors DAGAR and TRAGG he goes up against an ancient sorcerer who serves the "Old Ones". I much preferred the tales that involved Spektor directly. The ones he introduces, like THE PAINTER OF DOOM, A WEIRD NEW WORLD FOR JOE MATUCHA and DEATH BETWEEN FLOORS, deal with evil men getting their comeuppance.

The introduction by Glut explains the genesis of the character and what he had intended to do, which is interesting and gives the comic book context for the time period in which it was written.
