CHAMBER OF CHILLS #11 Facsimile
Cover A: Trade Dress - Limited Edition of 500
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 reimagining of the classic comic book cover art from CHAMBER OF CHILLS #11 (1952, Lee Elias), from the Golden Age of Comics and early horror-suspense books, by artist Jaime Coker. “When I first looked at the cover, I was reminded of Friday the 13th part two, when Jason is wearing the silly hood. I wanted to change the perspective, moving to a down looking up a point of view, with a stronger and more impending sense of doom, especially for the female character in the grasp of the monster. The bad guy caught up to her after all her battling and struggles and unfortunately, this time, there’s not going to be a happy ending.” - Jaime Coker
