Description

    Haunt of Fear #15 (#1) Gaines File pedigree 3/11 (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. One month after EC's first two horror titles hit the newsstands came the premiere issue of Haunt of Fear. Fortunately for all comic collectors, publisher William Gaines put a few super-nice copies away, including this one, which ranks just a smidge behind the highest-graded copies that CGC has certified to date. Behind the Johnny Craig cover, the Old Witch makes her first appearance. Craig, Harvey Kurtzman, Harry Harrison/Wally Wood, and Al Feldstein provided the interior art. Rated "scarce" by Overstreet, this grade makes our copy almost unique. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $4,000. CGC census 12/05: 1 in 9.6, 2 higher.
