CHAMBER OF CHILLS #19: TO YOUR HEALTH exclusive variant cover by John Hebert
""Four out of five artists picked this cover and I was the lucky one to draw the short straw and get to do it. The image is iconic, a real masterpiece from the Golden Age of comic art. I didn’t want to mess with it or make big changes, but focused on recreating the same setup and visuals but in my style and with some more modern ability to update the look." - John Hebert
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 #19 was released in 1953, with cover pencils and inks by Lee Elias. The cover featured a haunting green skeleton raising a wine glass to toast a beautiful blonde woman, revealing her skeleton through the prism of the glass. The cover was titled, “Happy Anniversary”.
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.
