    Description

    Jack Davis Tales From the Crypt #25 "The Trophy" Crypt-Keeper Splash Page 1 Original Art (EC, 1951). For most EC art fan-addicts, the number one "Grail piece" would be a spine-tingling Jack Davis Tales From the Crypt splash featuring the Crypt-Keeper, but these treasures rarely come to market. Case in point, this is the only stand-alone Davis Crypt splash Heritage has offered to date. This splash is, without a doubt, one of the supreme Crypt-Keeper portraits from the entire Crypt run, containing all the hallmarks a collector could hope for in peak period Davis. Note the Old Witch, Vault Keeper, Editor, and Associate Editor wall trophies -- keen observers will note those last two are actually William Gaines and Al Feldstein, adding yet another piece of history to this masterwork! This piece, formerly in the Don Lineberger collection, has an image area of 13" x 18", and the art is in Excellent condition.
