FOR MONSTERS ONLY COVER ART BY GRAY MORROW
Another auction offering from The Cracked Vault Archives is this original cover painting for FOR MONSTERS ONLY #10 (1972), the last issue of the magazine. It is by the late comic artist and illustrator, Gray Morrow. Considered an oft-overlooked master, Morrow worked for Marvel, Warren, Archie's Red Circle Sorcery imprint, and many others. His work can also be found in numerous science fiction digests of the day. Morrow was awarded a Hugo for best professional illustration.
This original art measures 15" x 20" and is rendered with oil on illustration board. As with yesterday's piece by John Severin, the original colors are considerably more vibrant than the printed cover.
