    Much used by DC at the turn of the 60s/70s – one of their horror comics used the motif for two almost identical covers of consecutive issues. There’s also an extremely over-rated “classic” Batman cover.

    Wish my wife could run from a house when it’s up for sale like that.

    I actually read quite a funny spoof of those type of covers last night in the book Murder Ink. It was a two-page ad spread for a special nightgown designed for creeping about crypts … it had a hoop with a flotation device for being pushed into ponds or fountains, an oversized collar that could be changed into a bat-proof hood, etc.
