Vampirella #34 - Jeff Jones art

Vampirella v1 #34, 1974 - A hunter vows to keep his wife from starving in their remote cabin, and keeps his promise in the most macabre way. Bernie Wrightson scripted this tale for Jeff Jones to illustrate, resulting in one of his best drawn stories for Warren. Beautiful brushwork abounds in each panel, especially in the interior cabin scene on page five (see interior page below). The full page title splash is a stand alone masterpiece, depicting the hunter and prey in the dead of winter. Jones also opted for black panel frames, boxing in the scenes to convey a heightened sense of claustrophobia. This is number 7 of 8 Vampirella issues with Jones art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts, more Jones or Vampirella issues. See also this blog's Jones checklist.
