Going..Going..Gone!-Tomb of Terror-1954

Harvey Comics was one of the more successful when it came to copying the style of the now-classic EC comics in the 1950's. Here, for example, is a lovely but creepy story from the final issue of THE TOMB OF TERROR before the Comics Code forced Harvey to become a more family-friendly publisher. GCD says the art here is by Joe Certa who would later be known for National's J'onn J'onzz series and Gold Key's DARK SHADOWS. Doesn't look all that much like Certa's work to me but whoever it is one can easily detect attempts at "doing" EC artists Jack Davis, Wally Wood and Johnny Craig.

I always like how Tomb 16 is referred to as the "Special S/F issue" in price guides.
