Description

    Haunt of Fear #15 (#1) Gaines File Copy (EC, 1950) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. The first issue of one of EC's (in)famous horror titles also was the first to feature the Old Witch. Johnny Craig's cover set the tone for the interior art provided by him, Harvey Kurtzman, Al Feldstein, and Wally Wood. This issue is listed as "scarce" by Overstreet, which makes this stunning 9.8 copy all the more appealing. It's also worth noting that we haven't seen a copy with a grade this high in nine years. CGC has certified this copy as from the Gaines Files, but no certificate accompanies the book. Overstreet 2016 NM- 9.2 value = $5,500. CGC census 8/16: 6 in 9.8, none higher.
