    Description

    Shock SuspenStories #1 Gaines File pedigree 8/12 (EC, 1952) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. Al Feldstein's electrocution cover was perfect for the first issue of the title, and rates a "classic" designation from Overstreet. With interior art by Jack Kamen, Graham Ingels, Joe Orlando, and Jack Davis, this was an instant nominee for comicdom's Hall of Fame. In less than three years, this title racked up an impressive number of "warning" citings by watchdog publications, dealt with some of the more controversial socio-political topics of the day, and generally offered stories and art that are universally recognized as milestones today. In the most recent CGC census data at this writing, only two other copies of this issue have garnered as high a grading from CGC as this surreal copy. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $950.
