    Tales From the Crypt #36 Gaines File pedigree 2/10 (EC, 1953) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white pages. Jack Davis not only does the cover of this issue, but he also draws the vampire story from which the cover is taken from. EC, after getting caught plagiarizing one of his stories, developed a very strong relationship with Ray Bradbury, and Ghastly Graham Ingels adapts the story in this issue. A biography and picture of George Evans is on the inside front cover and his art is featured in one of the interior stories. A Jack Kamen story rounds out the issue. This super-duper-killer copy is tied with one other as the highest-graded CGC copy to date. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $515.
