Cover Art Reference #4

Number 4 (or 5, or 6, but who's counting?) in an ongoing series.

Famous Monsters No. 40

This Ron Cobb cover was inspired by Jack Davis' poster art for Horror Hotel (aka City of the Dead).


One good swipe deserves another! Verne Langdon's "Halloween Spooktacular" LP, that was sold through the Captain Company.

Gogos Drac

Kerry Gammill ("Famous Monster Movie Art of Basil Gogos") provides this (small) image of the complete painting. It was an already existing painting, but I don't believe it's ever been published, before.
