    Neal Adams - Challengers of the Unknown #74 Cover Original Art (DC, 1970). A demented man-beast steals the soul of a bed-ridden little girl, right in front of her father -- man, oh man, who's he gonna call? The Challengers of the Unknown -- that's who -- and the Challs, in turn, bring in Boston Brand, aka Deadman, in "To Call A Deadman." Neal Adams set a new standard for horror covers at DC with his remarkable scenes for House of Secrets, House of Mystery, and Witching Tales, as well as on Deadman's own title, Strange Adventures. This dramatic cover, which blends the superhero and horror genres, is made even more spectacular by virtue of Neal's' superb inks on his pencils; Neal's inks always add an unparalleled finish to his art. The cover has an image area of 10" x 15". The cover retains its original title logos, and the word balloon is a paste-on, otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. Neal Adams has authorized the sale of this art, and you'll be forever haunted, if you don't put in a bid on this Bronze Age masterpiece!
