HAND OF FATE Issue #20 Cover
VF: 8.0
Pre-code horror comics were all the rage in the late 40s and early 50s, and, although EC Comics gets the lion's share of the credit for popularizing this genre, plenty of other publishing houses were keen to get in on the action, and Ace Comics were one of the publishers that put out horror content that gave EC a run for their money. This cover, from The Hand of Fate #20 is attributed to Ace staff artist Jim McLaughlin, who was a talented professional artist with a good sense of composition and an abundance of skill. This eerie elephant cover was just the sort of eye candy that kept young readers running to their local drug stores to get a fix of spooky thrills. Pre-code horror art has always been popular amongst collectors, and these sinister little gems are a solid investment, plus they are the perfect conversation piece to hang on your wall or show off in your collection.
