Classic February 2007
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Supernatural Thrillers #13 was published with a cover date of June 1975 and featured Gil Kane's interpretation of Marvel's latest horror character, the living mummy (his eighth appearance in the title). Dan Adkins provided the cover's inks for this issue, and it appears that someone added Dr. Martin's watercolors to the surface. The colorist's identity is unknown. It could have been Kane, it could have been Adkins, or it could have just as easily been one of their assistants. What is known is that this was not done as a coloring guide, for the printed cover did not display this level of sophistication in its light sourcing—this painted version is superior. Measuring 11-1/8" x 16-1/4" in size, the unsigned original work is nicely preserved, displaying at the EX level and still possessing all of its photostats.
