    Shock SuspenStories #6 Gaines File pedigree 2/12 (EC, 1952) CGC MT 9.9 Off-white to white pages. We've offered 9.8 copies of this collector's favorite on occasion, but a 9.9? That's a real exception, even for the typically pristine Gaines File copies. Overstreet describes this cover by Wally Wood as a "classic hooded vigilante bondage cover," and we liken its visual impact to the cover of the classic Suspense #3, a 9.0 copy of which recently fetched nearly $200,000 in our last auction. Wood, Jack Kamen, Joe Orlando, and Graham Ingels created the interior art. This blindingly perfect copy should stir up some real bidding interest, so be prepared to go to the mat to get this treasure. Overstreet 2015 NM- 9.2 value = $1,500. CGC census 11/15: 2 in 9.9, none higher.
