    Haunt of Fear #27 Gaines File pedigree 3/12 (EC, 1954) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. "Somber time ... and the livin' is E.C." Don't blame us for that groaner, it's a direct quote from the Old Witch, who introduces a very disturbing story entitled "About Face." Meanwhile, fellow horror host the Crypt-Keeper has a cannibalism story to tell. And the series' third GhouLunatic, the Vault-Keeper, not only tells a terror tale, he's seen perusing a copy of Seduction of the Innocent. The issue's artists are regulars Graham Ingels (who also drew the cover), George Evans, Jack Kamen, and Reed Crandall. CGC to date has certified just one higher-graded copy. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $320. CGC census 3/05: 1 in 9.4, 1 higher.
