The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh

My rendering of Dr. Christopher Syn's alter-ego, presumably drawn shortly after seeing the Disney version on Wonderful World of Disney (or possibly reading the novelization of same), in March 1976.For a different approach to the same thing, here's Dan Spiegle's take on him:

I've got most of the Gold Key comics in my collection, but the one closest at hand was a coverless Mexican issue under the name "El Espantajo", so that's what you get.
I never saw it as a child (and never realized it was from the same source until I finally saw last year), but I recommend Night Creatures, the Hammer adaptation that came out the same year as the Disney one.
