Censored Cover

This Vault of Horror 32 features a censored cover and internal artwork. The story involves a businessman who goes camping with his partner, and to get the business to himself, buries a hatchet in the top of his partner's head. Of course, the dead partner returns to haunt his murderer. Instead of seeing the hatchet lodged in his head, the cover and internal artwork were altered to show this bizarre white glow on top of the victim's head.

The censored images were removed in contemporary reprints and the hatchet is visible. However, I do not know if the uncensored images feature the actual original artwork, or the hatchet artwork was re-created for the modern printings.
