    Eric Estrada The Unexpected #192 Complete 3-Page Story "The Face of Abel" and One Additional Splash Group of 4 Page (DC Comics, 1979-82). DC's defiance of the Comics Code's anti-horror stance reached an early plateau with editor Joe Orlando's supervision of such titles as Unexpected. Estrada was a point-man in the modest rebellion, investing his creepier assignments with a sense of humor reminiscent of Orlando's pre-Code heyday as an EC Comics artist. Estrada also pulls a Wally Wood stunt on the three-pager, here, drawing himself into the story as a key character. The additional page is the opener to "The Final Page," a similarly short weirdie from Secrets of Haunted House #45. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Light toning, some wrinkled or crimped corners, and very tight border-cropping. Very Good condition.
