Original cover art to Creepy #29, by Vic Prezio, published in September of 1969. This is a very unusual Creepy cover in that it features a bikini-clad beauty...excuse us, it is actually a monster. But this false initial impression is precisely what makes this cover art so successful and creates such a strong reaction in viewers. At first glance the painting actually appears to be of the pinup or glamour genre. Closer inspection, of course, reveals the hideous truth, making this an ideal cover painting for an early Creepy issue subtitled "What Unspeakable Evil Is Found In The Summer House?" The image was "flipped" left to right when published (a common practice in the magazine industry) to accommodate for the added cover text. Measuring 12 x 16 inches on board, the painting is beautifully matted and framed, in flawless condition, and is accompanied by a file copy of the issued magazine. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $1,380.00
