    Description

    Tales From the Crypt Preliminary Hand-Colored Cover Guide (Russ Cochran, 1979). Jack Davis' "werewolf at the graveyard" cover no doubt gave a few children nightmares back in 1953. This was a classic example of the kind of comic kept under the bed, away from Mom's protective eyes. This hand-colored guide was used for the 1979 Vol. 4 reprint collection. Created in marker on printed on printed Jack Davis artwork that is stuck to to two other pages, with an image area of 8.75" x 12.5". There is moderate water damage, toning, soiling, color bleeding and fading, a paper scuff in the top title panel, and handling wear. In Good condition.

    More Information: EDIT: Updated to reflect 1979 reprinting date.
