DescriptionAl Feldstein The Crypt of Terror #17 "Death Must Come" Splash Page 1 Original Art (EC, 1950). If you have a yelp-yen for an Al Feldstein splash page from the dawn of EC, look no further. This key horror book was not only the first issue of this title, but also the very first EC "New Trend" comic to hit the stands. Formerly Crime Patrol, the title and format changed to horror with this issue. After just two more issues, this comic changed titles yet again, and became the legendary Tales from the Crypt. This is arguably the most important pre-Code horror comic book of all, and here is the landmark splash. While celebrated for his previous penchant for "good girl" art, Al Feldstein could also produce horror work like a champ, and this early portrayal of the Crypt-Keeper is definitive. The image area of this show-stopping piece of early EC history measures 17.5" x 12.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.
