'WITCHES TALES' ORIGINAL COVER ART
This original WITCHES TALES cover art by Lee Elias is augmented with recreations of the title, header and side margins. Elias (1920-1998) was a prolific comic book artist whose covers for Harvey's horror titles have become legendary for their outrageous depictions of terrifying imagery.
Lee Elias Witches Tales #24 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1954). Even the dead fear... "The Undertaker". Creepy and spooky... just as you like it. This cover has a wonderful use of shadows and lighting to set up a chilling image that makes you surprisingly sympathetic to the corpse! Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10.5" x 15.5". The logo, header, and side margins are all modern recreations. The original art image area measures 10.5" x 10". The "City Morgue" sign is an original hand-lettered paste-up with a touch of glue residue near it. Overall in Very Good condition.
