    Description

    Steve Stiles (as Ingram) Grave Tales #2 Splash Page Original Art (Hamilton Comics, 1991). The restless spirit of EC Comics mainstay Wally Wood hovers over this impressive homage to EC's horror titles of the 1950s. Stiles signs the page as "Ingram," in recognition of another EC stalwart, Graham Ingels, but the style hews closer to Wood, especially in the facial contours and the layered application of Zipatone shading film. Both Stiles and lettering artist Bill Pearson had been associates of Wood during his independent-publisher phase of the 1960s. There is an allusion to the anti-comics purge of the 1950s, with the depiction of a book (lower right) called The Comic-Book Menace, modeled after gadfly Frederick Wertham's 1954 tract, Seduction of the Innocent. Ink and shading film over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10.75" x 15". Faint toning. Excellent condition.
