    Description

    Tales From the Crypt #31 Gaines File pedigree 9/12 (EC, 1952) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. This issue features the first artwork Al Williamson did for EC (though another story was published first). The immensely talented Williamson quickly took his place among the company's regulars, and speaking of the EC staff, Bill Gaines and crew make an almost Mad-like appearance in a humorous tale drawn by Jack Kamen (and starring Kamen as the main character!). The issue also features the artwork of Jack Davis and Graham Ingels. Images from the issue were used in the book Parade of Pleasure. Only four copies of this issue have been certified with higher grades by CGc to date. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $625.
