Boris Karloff #21 - Jeff Jones art


Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery v1 #21, 1968 - One of Jeff Jones' earliest works, this short story of a cursed, jewel-studded skull is simply disappointing. A knowledge of basic anatomy is sorely lacking and the overall layouts are poorly planned. His depiction of series host Boris Karloff is amateurish at best. Thankfully, his work would improve exponentially and would far exceed this early effort. Other artists in this issue include Bill Draut and Luis Domingez. This is number 1 of 1 Boris Karloff issues with Jones art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Jones or Boris Karloff issues. See also this blog's Jones checklist.
