A reimagining of the Golden Age classic comics cover CHAMBER OF CHILLS #11 by artist Jaime Coker.
One of the original horror comic books, “Chamber of Chills” was first published by Harvey Publications in 1951, and ceased publication following the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency hearings of 1954 (United States). An unrelated series of the same name was published by Marvel Comics in the 1970s.
The series of stories were horror-suspense thrillers, featuring monsters, the undead and darker tales of science fiction. Issue #11 was released in 1952, with cover pencils and inks by Lee Elias. The cover featured a hooded figure with muscular green arms carrying off an unconscious beautiful woman while pursued desperately by a handsome young man.
“When I first looked at the cover, I was reminded of Friday the 13th part two, when Jason is wearing the silly hood. I wanted to change the perspective, moving to a down looking up point of view, with a stronger and more impending sense of doom, especially for the female character in the grasp of the monster. The bad guy caught up to her after all her battling and struggles and unfortunately, this time, there’s not going to be a happy ending.” - Jaime Coker
