    Description

    Mike Roy The Unseen #13 Splash Page 1 Original Art (Standard Comics, 1954). A classic of the floating-eyeball school of horror art, the pre-Code horror page is from "Scream in the Night". Perhaps more so than another pre-Code spooker brand, Standard delighted in baiting the censors with lurid, off-the-wall stories and art to match. Usually a moral lesson, somewhere, but not without a measure of full-bore creepiness. Roy's introductory page, here, depicts a sadistic trucker who enjoys crushing stray animals. Tough-guy art of a high order, with heavy-duty brush-line weight and a precipitous momentum. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 10" x 15". Excellent condition. From the Key Comics Collection.
