    Johnny Craig - Vault of Horror #14 Cover Original Art (EC, 1950). Here's a cover drawn to terrorize all you fan-addicts -- to make the blood freeze in your veins. For spine-tingling chills, few artists created a horror-mood to match the depth of Johnny Craig's EC works. Caleb Standish sweated bullets as he awaited the results of the "Voodoo Vengeance" against his cheating wife, Sally. Johnny Craig was a meticulous draftsman and a gifted writer-editor as well. He outlined his psychological approach to his chillers, "Fear is inside a person. Some people are afraid of some things, some are afraid of other things. But whatever they're afraid of is inside them." Craig's favorite horror themes included voodoo, zombies, personality transference, and above all, the psychological aspects of fear. This early cover, the third in the series, was a first-rate effort spotlighting many of Johnny Craig's noted themes. The image area of the cover measures 13.5" x 19.5". The cover has replacement stats of the title logo and caption box; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. Don't be haunted by the killer horror cover that got away, bid today!
