Description

    Lee Elias - Original Cover Art for Chamber of Chills #11 (Harvey, 1952). Lee Elias was one of Harvey's most prolific artists during the 1940s and '50s. While he is best remembered for his work on the Black Cat stories, it is his work on the tales of horror that really showcased his superior artistic ability. The variety of lines that he employed with the brush, as well as the compositional use of shadow and highlight greatly added to the spellbinding nature of the subject matter. The psychological insights to his characters were engagingly conveyed by his dynamic facial expressions and dramatic figures. Due to Harvey's practice of removing title stats to be used for subsequent issues, Heritage Comics has had this awesome piece professionally restored so as to present it in a way that best reflects the original intent of the artist. The title mast area and lower right text box are replaced stats.The hooded head of the villain was originally outlined with a blade so that the original title stat could fit behind in. There was also some white out painted around the original text box stat. This great piece is in excellent condition and measures 12.75 x 17.75".
