Witches Tales No. 10 Cover by Lee Elias

January 21, 2023|In General

It was pretty ballsy of Lee Elias in 1952 to draw the devil figure with androgynous characteristics on this fantastic cover for Witches Tales No. 10 for Harvey Comics. Perhaps that’s why it was covered up by a text block once it was published.

It was luck to find a scan of the art without any trade dress covering it, but some miserable prick – for some unknown reason, why oh why – scrawled whiteout over the top of the figures.

Art restoration and new colour by me.
