    Description

    Bill Draut and Maurice Whitman House of Mystery #261 Splash Page 1 Cain Original Art (DC, 1978). A wonderful intro page for this horror anthology that features the caretaker for the House of Mystery, Cain. His popularity would soar when Neil Gaiman would eventually incorporate him into the Vertigo imprint Sandman series in the 1990s. This page was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15" (including the paste-up indicia). The logo is a stat paste-up, and the board has been slit to allow it to slip behind the word balloon. There is a stripped-in text correction in the top caption that is taped from the backside. Light toning, with a bit of soiling on Cain's jacket tail. Otherwise, in Excellent condition.
