    Description

    Extra! #5 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1955) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. This was the last issue of this "New Direction" title. Though the series didn't strike a chord with the horror crowd at the time, it did feature superb stories and art, particularly by Johnny Craig, who drew this issue's cover as well as two stories. Other artists in the issue are John Severin and Reed Crandall. When a comic with white covers (both front and back) is graded this high, it's certainly headline news. This is the only 9.6, and the highest-graded copy overall, that CGC has certified as of this writing. While CGC has certified this book as a Gaines File copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $175.
