Original Gutenberg Monteiro Cover Painting for Creepy #21 (July, 1968)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,265.00

Original cover art to Creepy #21, by Gutenberg Monteiro, published in July of 1968. Memorable gothic-inspired cover features a horrified visitor, with traditional castle on a hilltop in the background, with hungry, vicious rats, symbols of all that is evil, attacking our guest in the glow of the full, orange moon. The original painting allows us to see the entire cover painting, many details of which are obscured when published by the magazine's original masthead. The original cover painting measures 9.75 x 12.5 inches, and is executed in gouache on board. The painting is beautifully matted with a copy of the published magazine. The original painting is in virtually flawless condition, and is an excellent representation of Warren's campiest late 1960s horror cover art. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,265.00
