CHAMBER OF CHILLS #23: KISS ME KATY exclusive variant cover by Bob McLeod
"I needed something fun and interesting but also fast to create. This cover had minimal background and detail. 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 new version.” - Bob McLeod
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 #23 was released in 1954, with cover pencils credited to Warren Kreme, inking by Lee Elias, and lettering by Joe Rosen. The cover featured the chilling and grotesque image of a reanimated corpse attacking an attractive blonde woman, holding her in a close embrace.
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.
