    Haunt of Fear #17 Gaines File pedigree 6/12 (EC, 1953) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. It's EC at its pre-Code best. Graham Ingels contributed arguably his best ever cover, an astounding study in color and scheme, and especially of effect. So gross, we can't turn away! Between the issues #11 and 17, Ingels managed to get four of his covers cited as "classic" by Overstreet. And the Gaines File copy brings it to you in such real life detail, you're glad it's not scratch 'n sniff! The interior art's by Ingels, George Evans, Jack Kamen, and Jack Davis. Overstreet 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $600. CGC census 9/08: 5 in 9.6, 1 higher.
