I remember this commercail for coca-cola where rhis couple are at an art gallery viewing a picture of a woman, and the portrait lady steals the real world lady's coke and the real world lady chases after her. I can't find it and I want to see how it ends.

So, there was this horror comic back around 1970 — maybe from DC? — that had a story featuring a Portal Picture.

I remember parts of it, but not enough to identify it.

This greedy old lady ran an orphanage, beating and starving the kids, as they are wont to do. When the whiny brats and incompetent minions got too much for her, she'd escape into a picture of a lovely wooded meadow.

At the end of the story — spoiler alert! — she got her comeuppance. The Law was coming down on her for her evil ways, so she planned to escape permanently into her picture. The twist was, the kids (who knew of her use of magic to enter paintings) replaced the picture of the woods for one of the sulfurous lakes of a fiery hell! And justice was done.

Does this ring any bells with anyone? I think I read this about 1972, and the comic was used when I got it. No big deal, it's just one of those little things that's been bugging the back of my mind since I read this page.
