Ghostly Haunts #30 [1973]

This is a clever little cover.

The big white gap in the painting really captures the eye right away, then the classic Ditko eye leads the viewer right to that shadow of the creature coming in from outside, then the elements circle around until you get the brushes pointing back to the original eye-catching element of the painting.

And Winnie the Witch adds the icing on the cake. Oh, Charlton horror hosts...

Of the 1970s covers in this series of cover-only posts, this is definitely among my favourites.
