    Description

    Crime Patrol #15 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. This historic issue in the EC annals had the first appearance of the Crypt Keeper, a feature so popular that the title would change from Crime Patrol to The Crypt of Terror after one more issue, later to become the more familiar Tales From the Crypt. Groundbreakers Johnny Craig and Al Feldstein showed their versatility by providing both scripts and story art, with Craig also providing the cover. While CGC has certified this as from the Gaines Files, no certificate accompanies the book. Overstreet 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $4,400. CGC census 12/08: 3 in 9.6, 3 higher.
