More on this exclusive variant cover from Craig Yoe

This very special variant cover has a tremendous story behind it! 

Reed Crandall made an homage to The Father of American Illustration, Howard Pyle, when he drew a “Piracy” comic book cover for EC. We now make an homage to EC in our variant cover design and we use Pyle’s famous Pirate painting ”Who Shall Be Captain?” that inspired Crandall to do it! Also note  the painting on the left side of the cover is a Pyle painting that some historians cite as a reference for a later Frazetta painting!  

Pyle! Crandall! Frazetta! EC Homage ! You’ll feel like a pirate rich with booty, matey, when you add this sparkling variant cover treasure to your booty! Avast now, ARRR!
