    Description

    Russ Heath - Original Art for Creepy #79, Complete 6-page Story, "Shadow of the Axe!" (Warren, 1976). The successor to the legendary EC Comics of the 1950s, Warren's fright mags Creepy and Eerie were successful in signing some of comics' most legendary creators to fill their pages with tension and terror. One of the finest stories to grace the pages of a Warren publication (and, in many people's minds, the most memorable), was the story offered here by the great Russ Heath. Atmospheric and moody, every panel is a masterpiece of horror. Rendered in subtle wash-tones, each page measures approximately 11.5" x 17.5", with an image area of approximately 10" x 15", and is in excellent condition, with little to no white-out. Held privately since its publication, this art may never be offered again for public sale.
