    Al Avison - Tomb of Terror #3, Bondage Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1952). Here's a real "monster-piece" -- it's a horrific bondage cover from one of the classic pre-Code horror titles. Harvey Comics mainstay Al Avison served up a real chiller-diller for this cover scene. This piece has an overall size of 18.75" x 19.5". The title stat is the original stat. Some elements of the bottom edge of the art were cut and re-positioned (notably the hand coming up out of the water), and whatever backing board was used has been lost, leaving a behind a couple of small holes in the art due to the lack of the backing board. The piece was folded in half at some point, leaving a horizontal crease; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. Don't let the condition report scare you off, this is a very powerful, horrific image that will make a "spook-tacular" addition to any horror art collection, and given the scarcity of original pre-code horror covers in general, this is an opportunity not to be missed!
