Growing Pains by Bob Toomey and Mike Zeck

'Growing Pains' by Bob Toomey (writer) and Mike Zeck (artist)
from Eerie #108, January, 1980

One of my favorite horror tropes involves homicidal little kids.....

This neat comic from Bob Toomey and Mike Zeck provides a clever take on the theme....and while the strip pulls its punches in terms of depicting gory mayhem, well, it was late 1979 when this issue of Eerie was published, a more innocent era, and one some decades before the advent of the 'Chucky' movies made little-kid-related grue more socially acceptable......
