Hi again everyone,

Thanks to everyone to responded to my recent post about James Bama, I really appreciate it.

In addition to Bama, I'm also trying to pin down the names of other artists who have painted/designed covers for other vintage paperback horror movie and TV-show novelizations/tie-in novels. Right now, I am trying to track down who painted the following covers:

DRACULA (First paperback edition from Pocket Books #452, with Bela Lugosi-like artwork on front cover)
HALLOWEEN II by Jack Martin (Dennis Etchison)
DRESSED TO KILL by Campbell Black and Brian De Palma
THE FOG by Dennis Etchison (USA edition, published by Bantam Books)
THE FIRST/SECOND HAMMER HORROR FILM OMNIBUS by John Burke (both 1960s and mid-70s reprints)
THE BRIDES OF DRACULA by Dean Owen (original 1960 edition published by Monarch)
ASYLUM by William Johnston
THE VAULT OF HORROR by Jack Oleck
THE WICKER MAN by Robin Hardy and Anthony Shaffer
IT'S ALIVE! by Richard Woodley
IT LIVES AGAIN! by James Dixon
THE OMEGA MAN (I Am Legend) by Richard Matheson
FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI: JASON LIVES by Simon Hawke
COMA by Robin Cook (artwork also used for the movie poster)

If anyone here knows of any of the artists who worked on these covers and could please let me know, I would greatly appreciate it. I would have attached images, but I am unfortunately having some trouble doing this right now.

Thanks again so much!

-James
