Hope you don't mind if I break the rules if I were to post a few non-horror/crime titles that I feel really crossed over the line. I have a lot more non-horror/crime examples but I don't want to derail fifties thread.

The first book in this thread is the most unsettling to me because it leaves the worst details to the viewer's imagination.

This one is tame by comparison, but the expression on the hunchback's face creeps me out.

Brian you are all right. Larry missed out on a copy in a recent Boards sale and said he’s been looking for one for like 15 years. I didn’t realize it was so scarce. 

Now it better not turn up on eBay or a Boards sale... :sumo:

Don't need to worry about that. This one's a keeper.

From what I understand, Bill Ekgren had these depictions as paintings, and the comic publisher bought them, or the rights, to use as comic book covers.  Ekgren later committed suicide.  Here's two of mine;

I believe Ekgren is still alive and living in Sweden. Born in 1918, he would be 100 years old in June! Would that make him the oldest living comic book artist?  He acknowledged his existence in a letter in 2010.
