    Crypt of Terror #19 Gaines File pedigree 1/11 (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. This is the last issue of the title that would become Tales from the Crypt with the next issue, and it features Craig, Feldstein, and Ingels art. Gaines copies are known for their near-absence of structural defects (like this one!), but it is not often remarked about how beautiful the colors and pages are on these copies (like this one!). We must, however, warn you not to attempt to carry this onboard a plane, as airport security will require you to check the razor-sharp corners of this book. According to the CGC census as of this writing, there are two copies in 9.6 and two copies in 9.8. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $1,900.
