    Description

    Crime SuspenStories #22 (EC, 1954) CGC VF+ 8.5 White pages. This classic decapitation cover by Johnny Craig is one of the most infamous pre-Code horror covers ever produced, and it was consequently used in a Senate investigation on the corruption of America's youth by comic books. And while this seems to be a relatively modest grade for the book, only five copies have ever been graded higher, and the last time that this copy came up for sale, it fetched a hefty $7,000, about four times the Overstreet Guide value! Reed Crandall, George Evans, and Jack Kamen art. Overstreet 2014 VF 8.0 value = $1,832; VF/NM 9.0 value = $2,916. CGC census 5/15: 2 in 8.5, 5 higher.
