    George Evans - Vault of Horror #33 Splash Page 1 Original Art (EC, 1953). George Evans' art had an understated quality that was perfect for ECs horror tales that often built from a solid grounding in reality to their full-blown nightmarish "twist endings." In this splash for "A Slight Case of Murder," Doctor Swanson tried to convince a skeptical small-town sheriff he knew the identity of Hilldale's serial killer. Evans' points of view, lighting schemes, and detailed backgrounds are limned with his lush inks. The portrait of the Vault-Keeper is a stat. The image area of the page measures 13" x 18". There are a few small stains in the panel gutter between panels one and two; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
