    Shock SuspenStories #6 Gaines File pedigree 2/12 (EC, 1952) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. A perfect copy of one of the most striking comic book covers of all time. We couldn't find a flaw on the book, have a look at our scan and try it yourself! Also, looking at the side of the slab it wasn't clear why this didn't get the "white pages" designation. Overstreet describes this Wally Wood cover as a "classic hooded vigilante bondage cover." Have a look at the prices that the similar Suspense Comics #3 trades for even in average grades and we think you'll see that this one is a very attractive buy. Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $1,050. CGC census 4/12: 3 in 9.8, 1 higher.
