Greetings from Chicagoland!
Circa 1980, I’m flipping through a black-and-white horror mag, title unknown, and see a bit of story involving a man with a cleaver cutting up a conscious woman. A big panel shows her arched backwards over a table or butcher’s block, her arm cut off at the elbow, while he’s holding her down with one hand, cleaver upraised in the other. A few panels later, his attack is over. Another small panel shows him mostly offscreen; he’s standing before her head, now split in half lengthwise at the front, lying on the table / block. Cleaver hanging at his side, he cries(??!?!??!!?), with dialogue saying, “Oh, Ellen…. Ellen….” (Could’ve been Helen, but I think Ellen is correct.) The last panel I recall shows him clutching a struggling bird while splitting it with the cleaver. I quit reading when he started going after other animals.
I’d like to know what the hell this made-up murderer’s problem was and to get some satisfaction in seeing him suffer. Thank you, thank you, thank you for any leads.
Thank you more for helping humanity, one Kindertrauma at a time!
