I wonder if anyone can help... I am trying to locate a comic book story - DC comics I think - from around the mid 1970s. It featured a couple (I'm sure their names were Fred and Mary) who encounter a sort of redneck/hillbilly family out in the backwoods and the man falls for the young woman of the family, whose name was Gloria. Mary falls victim to Gloria's brother (?) who is a shape shifting monster. In its hideous form (a sort of pink, gelatinous mound covered in eyes) it engulfs Mary who pleads for help from Fred, who abandons her to her fate. A pretty freaky, gruesome little tale which left an indelible imprint on my impressionable teenage mind...can anyone out there throw any light whatsoever on this? I'd be most grateful - but if not, thanks anyway for sparing the time to read this!
All in the Family
According to the description on this website:
One night, a married couple named Fred and Mary are out for a drive when their car swerves off the road and they find themselves stranded in a swamp.
The “gelatinous mound” is indeed Gloria’s brother:
They tell him they are Gloria’s parents and the hideous blob is Gloria’s brother. When he asks where Gloria is, they tell him she is “changing into something more comfortable…”
Here’s the pink mound with eyes:
