About the Chamber of Chills:
The first Chamber of Chills was a 10-cent horror anthology published bimonthly by Harvey Publications that ran 26 issues (June 1951 - Dec. 1954). Issue #7 is mentioned in Dr. Fredric Wertham's 1954 indictment of comic books Seduction of the Innocent (p. 389). Chamber ceased publication following the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency hearings of 1954. Harvey Comics then began concentrating on titles for young children.
Chamber of Chills was formerly Blondie Comics, taking over that comic’s numbering with issue #21. After issue #24 (Dec. 1951), the numbering was reset to #1. Chamber of Chills became Chamber of Clues with the February 1955 issue, and ceased publication two issues later, the last cover-dated April 1955.
About the Creation:
A recreation of the classic comic book cover art from CHAMBER OF CHILLS #19 (1953, Lee Elias) from the Golden Age of Comics and one of the early horror-suspense books. "Four out of five artists picked this cover for the project and I was the lucky straw to get to do it. The image is iconic, a real masterpiece from the Golden Age of Comic Art. I focused on recreating the same setup and visuals but in my style to update the look. To recreate rather than reimagine.” - John Hebert
