    Tales of Terror Annual #2 (EC, 1952) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. We hadn't seen a high-grade copy of this one in years! Three factors that make it very tough to find in such nice condition: the square bound format, the fact that there are no Gaines File copies of this book, and the limited distribution of these annuals. The contents of every copy of this issue are different from the next (these annuals contained four unsold EC comics, re-bound without the original covers), but the real eye-catcher is Al Feldstein's cover art, perhaps the best group portrait ever done of EC's three GhouLunatics, the Vault-Keeper, the Old Witch, and the Crypt-Keeper. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $1,721; VF/NM 9.0 value = $2,361. CGC census 5/06: 2 in 8.5, 2 higher.
