The mad monk of San Christobal belonged to no established brotherhood, but he seized mastery over superstitious minds and wielded his power for evil.

Indexer Notes

Originally art credits for "Dick Ayers" from Saltarella via the GCD Error Tracker. But this art has all the signs of Tuska, long figures with small heads, long necked heads in profile, and unmistakeable faces. It doesn't match Ayers' signed work in "Bobby Benson" #18.
