    Description

    Tales of Terror Annual #3 (EC, 1953) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Cream to off-white pages. Al Feldstein's rendition of one of medieval Europe's more infamous torture devices, the rack, graces this male bondage cover. The Vault Keeper, Crypt Keeper, and Old Witch can be seen enjoying their victim's screams of agony. One has to wonder if the guy's pain is due to his fear of the EC branding iron, being stretched by the ropes, or that he really, really needs to go potty....This 128 page issue promises tales of terror rendered by the EC grand masters of the macabre, including Ghastly Graham Ingels, Wally Wood, and Jack Kamen. CGC notes, "Light tanning on edges of pages." Otherwise, this is a scintillating example of this tough issue. Overstreet 2003 VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,508; NM 9.4 value = $1,875.
