    Haunt of Fear #19 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1953) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. Quintessential EC horror issue -- and a great example of why the Comics Code Authority came about to spoil all the fun! The Graham Ingels bondage and decapitation cover portends what lies a-head! Inside is the classic "Foul Play", must-read for any true EC Fanatic. It's cited in SOTI. Ingels, George Evans, Jack Kamen, and Jack Davis serve up the usual peerless art that EC's known for. CGC has certified this as from the Gaines Files, but no certificate accompanies the lot. Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $825. CGC census 8/11: 2 in 9.6, 4 higher.
