    The Haunt of Fear #12 Gaines File pedigree 1/12 (EC, 1952) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Beginning with the previous issue, Graham Ingels took over the cover duties for this title, giving The Haunt of Fear a distinctive look, and ushering in some of the most effective, horrific covers EC produced. This is one of the four Ingels covers that Overstreet deems "classic". Additional artists contributing to this issue were Joe Orlando, Johnny Craig, and Jack Davis. When publisher William Gaines begin designating his file copies, he chose this as the nicest copy of the twelve he saved of issue #12. CGC almost agrees; only one copy has received a higher grade to date. Go to our website for a closer look at this breathtaking copy. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $425.
