DescriptionWarren Kremer (attributed) Black Cat Mystery #40 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1952). It doesn't get much more gruesome than this pre-Code horror cover. A giant, slavering monster snatches up villagers on this macabre masterpiece from 1952. Kremer's most notorious assignments were the shocking horror covers he drew for Harvey Comics. His organic style suited the macabre work that was Harvey's stock-in-trade during the fifties. Kremer had a way of making creepy things ooze right off the page, as this dreadful delineation will attest. The image area measures 11.5" x 16.5". This piece has been restored. The small issue number/date stat and the "PDC" stat are replacements, but all others are original. The glue stains were painted over with gouache. The figure of the giant was cut along the top edge to allow the title stat to fit behind the image during the initial production process but, otherwise, the piece is Very Good condition.
