    Description

    Dan Adkins Creepy #12 Complete 1-Page Story "Creepy's Loathsome Lore" Original Art (Warren Publ., 1966). In his heyday as a leading protègé of the great Wally Wood, Adkins delivered some of the best work that the Warren horror books had to offer. Adkins often said he was especially inspired by the fierce intensity of editor Archie Goodwin's scriptwriting. This inventory of sea serpents and beasts covers a shipwreck of 1852; a 1959 sighting in the Inner Hebrides; a series of 20th-century observations at Montana's Flathead Lake; a gigantic eel off coastal Africa; and (of course) the Loch Ness Monster. We also get a miniature nautical portrait of the series' cartoon-host, Uncle Creepy, in the style of Jack Davis. Not to mention that Ben Oda's lettering is a work of art in itself. Watercolors on heavyweight illustration board. The image area is 10.5" x 15". Light toning. Excellent condition.
