    Description

    Crypt of Terror #17 Gaines File pedigree 2/10 (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. This book is currently sixth on Overstreet's list of the most valuable horror books. That's because this is the very first New Trend EC book to hit newsstands! Though the Crypt-Keeper first appeared in Crime Patrol, the book 100 Greatest Comic Books notes, "The impact of the Crypt-Keeper starts in Crypt of Terror #17," and ranks this issue among the 20 greatest comic books. This first issue is #17 because EC continued the numbering of Crime Patrol, then published three issues under this name before the title change to the now-famous Tales From the Crypt. This issue has a Johnny Craig cover, with interior art by Craig, Al Feldstein, and George Roussos. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $4,300. CGC census 3/06: 3 in 9.6, 1 higher.
