    Description

    Johnny Craig Vault of Horror #28 Cover Original Art (EC, 1952). With an undeniable talent for creating scenes of spine-tingling terror, Johnny Craig was given the green light by Bill Gaines to create the covers for every issue of the Vault of Horror. "He did some of our best covers," Gaines recalled, "Including the infamous severed head cover, which may be the most famous cover ever in comics, and certainly the only one ever to be the focus of an inquiry before the United States Senate."

    The image area of this blood-chilling classic measures 13" x 18.5", and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 17.5" x 23". The art is in Excellent condition.
