'TALES OF VOODOO' ORIGINAL COVER ART
Myron Fass' Eerie Publications were legendary for their lurid and perverse covers. It's not often that we get to see one of these morbid masterpieces without the logo and titles. This is one rare example of original cover art from TALES OF VOODOO Vol. 6 No. 1 from 1973 that was auctioned off a decade ago.
Not noted by the auction house, the art is by Bill Alexander. Some sources list the work as being rendered in pencil and ink, but it has been obviously painted, probably in gouache.
Lot #92245 sold in May 2009 for $4,182.50.
Description of Lot:
Tales of Voodoo V6#1 Painted Cover Original Art (Eerie, 1973). This blood-dripping, spine-tingling, chiller-diller of a "monster-piece" has an image area of 13" x 19", and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 21.5" x 26.5".
