    Description

    Al Feldstein Tales from the Crypt #22 Cover Original Art (EC, 1951). This horrific cover illustration was for the lead story "The Thing From The Grave" in this issue. Feldstein was better known for his work on EC's sci-fi covers; namely, Weird Fantasy and Weird Science. Not only was his output very limited on this title, they rarely turn up. From the moody moss-covered tree to the muddy, shadowy soil, every inch of this piece capsulates the EC pre-Code horror that fans love! The original art was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 11" x 12". It was affixed to a larger EC Bristol board where side bar and masthead dressing and images would have been added. These have been recreated on two pieces of modern vellum and affixed to the board. The logo/masthead has come loose, but is included. Matted to 16.75" x 22.5". In Very Good condition.
