    Description

    Michael Kaluta House of Mystery #265 Cover Original Art (DC Comics, 1978). Kaluta, a pivotal artist in DC's mystery-and-horror revival, fit right in with editor Joe Orlando's determination to challenge the repressive Comics Code and its generation-long ban on horror. Orlando (a veteran of EC Comics' horror line) had assigned this crepuscular piece for an issue of Weird Mystery Tales, but the cancellation of that title left Kaluta's gigantic spider nearly orphaned -- House of Mystery to the rescue. Kaluta's infallible sense of crushing terror is in top form, here. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 10" x 15". Excellent condition.
