    Lee Elias - Original Cover Art for Black Cat Mystery #38 (Harvey, 1952). Of all the artists in Harvey's stable, it was Lee Elias that stood out from the crowd when it came to the horror covers. Though this title began as a solo book for the Black Cat, Harvey soon realized that there was a burgeoning market for horror books, kicked the sultry superheroine out of her own title and morphed it into a cover-to-cover mayhem mag. This strangulation cover shows the imminent demise of a witch, and the composition is so strong you may find yourself gasping for air right along with the old crone. This piece comes to you matted with an image size of 9.5" x 14".
