House of Mystery #177 - Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams
House of Mystery v1 #177, 1968 - Three children hide behind tombstones while watching a gravedigger, only to discover an pack of cats converging behind them. One of the Neal Adams' best covers for this title, the art has a heavily textural quality to it, including the fur on the foreground cat. The composition is superb, leading the viewer from front to the very back. Even the color palette works surprisingly well. Other artists in this issue include Mort Meskin and Bill Draut. This is number 3 of 26 House of Mystery issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or House of Mystery issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
