I was wondering if anyone knew how the icon of the zombie hand reaching through the ground came to be. Is it inspired by any previous symbol in art history? what are your thoughts?
The earliest I can recall seeing such an image would be from a fiftie’s era comic book cover, such as “Weird Tales” or something like that.
But I can imagine it appearing as an illustration for some gothic type nineteenth century horror tales book, like, for example, of Edgar Alan Poe’s stories.
Good luck on your search.
