    This illustration was originally created to be the cover of Web of Horror #3. However, the artist crafted a second vertical rendition at the request of the publisher. This first version was later published as the cover for Bernie Wrightson Treasury by Bernie Wrightson (Omnibus Publishing, 1975). A pencil on paper preliminary for the image and the completed acrylic on paper title design for the cover accompany this lot.


    More Information: There appears to be no major visible condition issues to note.
