    Haunt of Fear #15 (#1) (EC, 1950) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. This is the first issue of one of EC's famous horror titles, and it has the first story Harvey Kurtzman produced for EC (though not the first to make it into print). Johnny Craig's cover gave way to exquisite drawings by himself, Harvey Kurtzman, Al Feldstein, and the team of Harry Harrison and Wally Wood. Note that Overstreet lists the following issue as the first appearance of the Old Witch; while that does look like her on this issue's cover, some have speculated that that's her fellow GhouLunatic, the Vault Keeper. This is one of the hardest copies for Fan-Addicts to scare up -- it's rated "scarce" by Overstreet. Overstreet 2007 NM- 9.2 value = $4,600. CGC census 10/07: 1 in 9.2, 7 higher.
