Dave Sim Parodies EC Vault Of Horror For Cerebus In Hell One-Shot

Dave Sim is continuing is rapidly-decreasing successful tactic of giving every issue of Cerebus In Hell its own number 1, with a new title in a desperate attempt to bring attention to his cut-and-pasting of old Cerebus art into the work of Gustave Dore, continuing the tales of Cerebus' eternal torment after death. And this time the EC title Vault Of Horror that gets the title and cover treatment for Aardvark Vanaheim's October 2020 solicitations. But as well as Gustave Dore, he is also reusing some of his Glamourpuss artwork, from a time when he could still draw comfortably.

Sim used to run zombie variant covers on his Glamourpuss comic book/magazine in an attempt to cash in on the rush for The Walking Dead-related content. And now it seems that these zombie variant cover models will be returning. Here is the solicitation and some of the covers that used to run which will be repurposed for Vault Of Cerebus.
