    Haunt of Fear #20 Gaines File pedigree 8/11 (EC, 1953) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. Even though the EC horror titles had been running just three years when this issue hit the stands, they were already recognized as classics. Why else would an Al Feldstein story from an earlier issue (and title!) already be reprinted? One of the highest-graded copies CGC has certified of this issue, but as a Gaines File Copy that's almost a given. Graham Ingels did the cover and worked on interior story art, along with Al Feldstein (the aforementioned reprint "Terror Train"), Jack Davis, and Reed Crandall. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $500. CGC census 12/06: 2 in 9.4, 2 higher.
