    Johnny Craig - Vault of Horror #39, Complete 8-page Story "Deadly Beloved" Original Art (EC, 1954). "Deadly Beloved" is an exquisite example of Johnny Craig's detailed draftsmanship and razor-sharp inking -- we "double-dog dare you" to find a sensuous spine-tingler that can top this thriller. The splash page kicks things off in grand EC style, with a moody masterpiece spotlighting both the vile Vault-Keeper and the delicious Drusilla. After that, panel after panel of gorgeous "good girl" art is accented with masterfully lit, macabre moments that make this fast-paced chiller one of the finest yelp-yarns that Craig ever drew. Each pulse-pounding page has an image area of 13" x 18", and aside from some pasted-on lettering corrections and a title logo replacement, the art is in Excellent condition.
