    Description

    Crime Patrol #16 Gaines File pedigree 3/11 (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. This was the last issue of this series before the title's changeover to Crypt of Terror -- and Johnny Craig's spooky cover made clear what was to come, with the horror theme and "Crypt" blurb letting readers know that this was no longer just another straight crime comic. The Crypt-Keeper makes his second appearance in this issue, which has stories illustrated by Craig, Al Feldstein, and George Roussos. This stunning pre-Trend issue is virtually flawless; there is currently only one copy of this issue that has been graded higher by CGC. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $2,300. CGC census 12/04: 3 in 9.6, 1 higher.
