CHAMBER OF CHILLS #18: BARBERSHOP OF HORROR exclusive variant cover by Joe Rubinstein
"Not many of us wander into a castle in Transylvania and encounter monsters.
The horrifying element is the real shock when the real world surprises us out of nowhere. This poor guy is having a shave and suddenly looks up to realize his barber is a ghoul wielding a blade, intent on doing him harm. At that moment, it’s deer in the headlights. He’s not pulling himself together in time to survive this moment.” - Joe Rubinstein
About CHAMBER OF CHILLS
One of the original horror comic books, “Chamber of Chills” was first published by Harvey Publications in 1951, and ceased publication following the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency hearings of 1954 (United States).
Issue #18 was released in 1953, with cover pencils and inks by Lee Elias. The cover featured a gruesome monster of a man holding a straight blade and the hair of a terrified handsome man in a barber chair.
An unrelated series of the same name was published by Marvel Comics in the 1970s. The series of stories were horror-suspense thrillers, featuring monsters, the undead, and darker tales of science fiction.
