    Description

    Michael Kaluta Forbidden Tales of Dark Mansion #12 Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, 1973). The Witch of the Dark Mansion welcomes readers on the first page of this issue. A stunning and bewitching piece with the intricate detail and fine design details you would expect from Mike Kaluta. Long considered one of the masters of comic art, Kaluta was a member of "The Studio" in the 1970s with other major players, Jeffrey Jones, Barry Windsor-Smith, and Bernie Wrightson. This piece was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15" (including the taped-on indicia stat). There is a text correction in the introduction caption box, applied with production tape. There is a very light discoloration in the image area, just below the witch's left knee. In Very Good/Excellent condition, with fantastic eye-appeal.
