    Description

    Michael Kaluta Web of Horror Unpublished Complete 4-Page Story Original Art Group (Major Magazines, 1970). Cracked Magazine's companion horror mag Web of Horror should have been hailed as the greatest thing since EC's Tales From the Crypt, but sadly, things did not go as planned. With a line-up of young talent that included Berni Wrightson, Ralph Reese, Bruce Jones, Frank Brunner, and Michael Kaluta, the future looked bright, but after three published issues, the plug was pulled by publisher Robert Sproul. A fourth issue, complied by Wrightson and Jones, was to include this four pager titled "I Can't See My Face Because My Name Keeps Getting in the Way." Long thought lost, the original art turned up in Sproul's archives, and Heritage is pleased to offer this early work by one of the biggest names in fantasy art from the last 50 years. The art is in ink over graphite, with Zipatone shading film, on heavyweight sketchbook paper, with an average image area of 11" x 16" per page. There's a bit of handling wear and toning of the shading film, but overall, the condition is Excellent. From The Cracked Vault Collection.
