    Description

    Don Heck - Death Valley #5 Cover Original Art (Comic Media, 1954). Don Heck's covers for Comic Media are considered one of the high points of his long and storied career. Pre-code fans admire the over-the-top sensationalism and gore of Heck's infamous Comic Media covers. Comics historian Mike Benton noted this about Comic Media in his The Comic Book In America, "Some of their more notorious comics were their horror titles, Horrific and Weird Terror. The covers of both books featured either a corpse's face or a leering maniac's head that had been shot, stabbed or otherwise colorfully disfigured." The image area of this hard-hitting bushwhacking scene measures 14" x 21", and the art is in Excellent condition. Also included in this lot are copies of Death Valley #2, 5, and 6 comic books.
