Description

    Shock SuspenStories #1 Gaines File pedigree 8/11 (EC, 1952) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. This issue almost defies description. It is so perfect, even by the lofty standards of the Gaines File Copies, that it stands out as the epitome of quality. The spine is absolutely flawless, all four corners are razor sharp -- the entire book is bright and clean. It is obvious that this book looks exactly the same as it did the day William Gaines pulled it off the presses 50 years ago. Many of the greats of EC's staff worked on this premiere issue, including Jack Kamen, Graham Ingels, Joe Orlando and Jack Davis, plus Al Feldstein on the classic electrocution cover. Overstreet NM 9.4 value = $950.
