Original Sanjulian Cover Art Painting for Creepy #53 (May 1973)
Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $4,350.00
Original Sanjulian cover painting for Creepy #53, published May 1973. Entitled "One Eye Monster," this is a classic Warren cover art painting featuring a particularly ghoulish "bog monster," a perpetual inhabitant of the frightening Warren netherworld, traipsing through the darkness of the night under the glare of the full moon. A teddy bear on the ground reminds us that this image of the imagination is part of the real world. Manuel Sanjulian is universally recognized as one of Warren Publishing's true masters. Few artists were able to capture the horror of the Warren universe so effectively, and have such a lasting impact on the entire genre. Sanjulian is credited with giving the Creepy and Eerie titles their character during their most successful, early years. His work is rare, and also held in the highest esteem among collectors. This is an outstanding example of Sanjullian's work which has never before been offered. Oil on canvas. 16 x 19 inches. In virtually flawless Near Mint condition. Included with the cover painting is a copy of the published magazine. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000. SOLD FOR $4,350.00
