    Frontline Combat #10 Gaines File pedigree 6/9 (EC, 1953). One of the many factors that sets EC comics apart from their contemporaries is their willingness to explore and portray the human side of an issue. This John Severin/Will Elder cover shows a war orphan crying amidst the rubble that had once been his home. Ahead of its time, this editorial style wouldn't become en vogue until late in the Vietnam era. Contributing artists in this issue include such EC legends as Jack Davis, George Evans and Wally Wood. There are only nine Gaines File copies of this issue extant. The condition is truly superb. The front cover, spine and corners are flawless, and the back cover has only a very minor ding at the bottom edge. Very conservatively graded, this copy compares very favorably to many of the 9.6s and 9.8s. CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. Overstreet 2001 NM 9.4 value = $175.
