DescriptionLee Elias - Color Progressive Proofs for Black Cat Mystery #49 Cover (Harvey, 1954). Here's a rare chance to see one of Harvey's great horror comic covers as it goes through the four-color printing process, step by step. This is a complete set of printer's proofs, prepared as a means of color control, for the notorious Lee Elias "Clean as a Whistle" front cover to Black Cat Mystery #49. Each process color is included - magenta (red), cyan (blue), yellow, and black, as well as combinations of yellow and magenta and yellow-magenta-cyan. These are all printed on standard comic cover stock, and bound with a heavy cover sheet from Koppel Photo Engravers in New Haven, Connecticut. These items rarely turn up on the collector's market, as most were trashed after publication, but here's a near-perfect example from a very desirable cover.
