[THE GREY CLAW]
Writer: Francisco Armond
Artist: Renato Silva
Inspector Higgins and his assistant, Miller, investigate the suspected death of Prof. Cuberry. The scientist was apparently killed by
an evil crime lord known only as The Grey Claw.
The Claw is, in reality, Dr. Stone, a
chemist and one of Cuberry's former colleagues. The Grey Claw then embarks on a reign of terror. His tools include
a giant robot named Flag, a murderous
gorilla with Prof. Cuberry's brain, and Kathy,
Cuberry's former secretary, now brainwashed into an evil villainess nicknamed the "Lady
in Black". After a variety of ghastly crimes, the Claw is eventually
be killed by an insane Flag during the police's assault on his lair. Kathy is saved and becomes good again.
La Griffe Grise (The
Grey Claw) was serialized in the Belgian magazine "Le
Moustique" starting on 15 October 1944, in weekly, one-page instalments.
