Johnny Craig - Vault of Horror #40 page 2 (1954). EC fan-addict art collectors are sure to be awed by this crisply inked page from the heart of Johnny Craig's peak period at EC - it's a simply sensational piece by one of EC's best editor/writer/artist triple-threat talents. This page dates from the very close of the pre-Code era, published as part of the lead story in Vault of Horror #40, the final issue of the run. In this art, a man stops a group of boys from tormenting a deformed old man, trying to teach them a lesson about not judging people on appearances. In EC fashion, this story closes with a twist ending, with the protagonist falling victim to the same prejudices that he accuses others of, thereby sending a thinly veiled social message to readers during an era when the civil rights movement was just emerging. Craig both scripted and drew this story, making it a very solid example of his esteemed work for the line. This art has an image area of approximately 9" x 12"
