CHAMBER OF CHILLS #23 Facsimile

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 from CHAMBER OF CHILLS #23 (1954, Warren Kreme and Lee Elias) from the Golden Age of Comics and early horror-suspense books. "I wanted my recreation to be reminiscent of the original but in my style. I stuck to the same coloring scheme and composition so that my cover was a recreation, not a (reimagined) new version.” - Bob McLeod
