Description

    Lee Elias - Original Cover Art for Chamber of Chills #24 (Harvey, 1951). This is actually the fourth issue of the title as the numbering sequence changed to #5 with the next issue. 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 horror tales that really showcased his superior artistic ability. The psychological insights to his characters were engagingly conveyed by his dynamic figures and facial expressions. This cover art is so filled with all of the elements that true horror fans loved -- a beautiful woman in bondage, the mad scientist with all of his props, shrunken people in glass jars, and the creature in a cage with the tell-tale skeletal remains! Elias' careful attention to composition and detail is just a joy to look at. This cover was hand signed by Elias at the bottom of the image. 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 very top left part of the title mast area is a replaced stat as is the 4 and "DEC." in the cover date area. The text box at the bottom left corner has been applied to a small clear overlay from the left edge so that the fantastic art beneath can still be appreciated. This great piece is in excellent condition and measures 12.5" x 18.75".
