    Bob Powell - Original Art for Witches Tale # 10, Complete 7-Page Story, "It" (Harvey, 1953). Giant creatures made of blood-hungry protoplasm consume all human flesh they touch. Unlike the similar tales of "The Blob" or "The Cosmic All," this tale is set in 1877 Munich. Bob Powell excels at detailing this ghastly period piece! Several of the pages have had captions cut out of the pages, and then replaced with art and lettering corrections. [The affected areas are the word balloon in panel six of page two, panel six of page four, panel three of page five, panel four of page six, and panel five of page seven.] Only the type on the balloon on page two, and the caption from page seven are lost, the others have simply come loose. Beautiful brushwork by Powell, who often uses areas of blue ink-wash to indicate coloring and lighting effects. The overall art paper size is 12.5" x 19", with an image area of 11.5" x 18".
