    Description

    Tales From the Crypt #31 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1952) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to 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. Note that while CGC has certified this book as a Gaines File copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $660. CGC census 6/05: 3 in 9.8, none higher.
