Description

    Lee Elias - Original Cover Art for Chamber of Chills #18 (Harvey, 1953). This bone-chilling cover has attained classic status among collectors of Golden Age horror comics. To have the original art surface is a great opportunity for any serious collector of superior art for any genre. This cover must have really shocked the juvenile readers of the day and made them fear their next visit to the barber! Due to Harvey's practice of reusing title stats by either removing them or, in this case, cutting away the art, Heritage Comics has had this exceptional 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 "Haircut!" part of the text box are replaced stats. The top borderline of the mirror and top line of the fluorescent light fixture have been hand painted. The two parts were then mounted onto a piece of matte board. The piece measures 11.75 x 17". Don't miss this chance to own a true piece of comic history.
