    Ruben Moreira Adventures into Darkness #5 "Horror's Little Acre" Complete 7-Page Story Original Art (Pines Publ., 1952). Moreira, a.k.a. Rubimor, was one of the finest pulp-tradition illustrators ever to grace the comic-book scene. His pre-Comics Code work is especially bracing, with a highly stylized hyper-realism in a class with Alex Toth and Johnny Craig. Moreira brings more to the tale than is written (scripter unbilled) in recounting the ordeals of a honeymooning couple, stranded in a place dominated by supernatural horrors. The title is a riff on Erskine Caldwell's famous Southern Gothic novel, God's Little Acre (1933), which gained renewed popularity during the 1950s while on its way to becoming a Hollywood movie. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 12.25" x 18.5". Light to moderate toning. Very Good condition.
