The EC- Comics Gang of usual suspects...

The Cryptkeeper, the Vaultkeeper and the old Witch were the hosts of the legendary  EC Comics line of Horror comic books. 
This group portrait (including publisher William Gaines about to be boiled), was done for the cover of issue #34 of the now long defunct German HIT-Comics magazine. Sadly, it was the last regular issue and on top of it they mirrored the illustration for printing, so the Witch had her evil eye on the wrong side....*sigh*
