    Description

    Jack Davis Tales From the Crypt #40 "Pearly to Dead" Cover Original Art (EC, 1954). For most EC art collectors, the ultimate "Grail piece" would be an electrifying Jack Davis Tales From the Crypt cover, but these treasures rarely come to market. Case in point, the only prior Davis Crypt cover Heritage has offered hails back to a 2005 auction. This cover is, without a doubt, one of the supreme shockers from the entire Crypt run, containing all the elements a fan-addict could hope for in peak period Davis -- including one of the most gruesome ghouls ever put down on paper. This piece has an image area of 13.5" x 19.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
