    Description

    Al Feldstein Tales from the Crypt #21 Cover Original Art (EC, 1950). One of the most iconic early EC images, this jolting cover comes from only the fifth issue of this legendary series, and it is from only the second issue after the title switched to Tales from the Crypt from the earlier The Crypt of Terror. More importantly, this is the very first of Al Feldstein's six covers for the horror title. Most Crypt covers are buried away in collections and examples rarely come onto the market. The art has an image area of 13.5" x 19.25". There is a one-inch tear in the bottom border, which barely extends into the ruled border and artwork, and there is an abrasion and small piece missing from the top of the logo stat; otherwise, it is in Very Good condition.
