    Description

    Crypt of Terror #17 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages. The first issue of this title carried over the numbering from Crime Patrol, where two issues previously, the Crypt Keeper and the Crypt of Terror had been introduced. This was in effect the first EC New Trend title to hit the newsstands in 1950, and this copy is undoubtedly nicer than any of those newsstand copies! Currently ranked in the Top 5 of most valuable horror comic book issues by Overstreet, it's moved up a notch from 2006, and will probably take over fourth place by 2008. Johnny Craig did the cover and also provided interior art, along with Al Feldstein and George Roussos. CGC has certified this as a Gaines File copy, but a certificate does not accompany the book. Overstreet 2007 NM- 9.2 value = $4,600. CGC census 5/07: 3 in 9.6, 1 higher.
