    The Haunt of Fear 17 (#3) (EC, 1950) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. The triumvirate of EC horror hosts take over the cover of this early "New Trend" issue, and the Vault Keeper, Crypt Keeper, and Old Witch bring readers the origins of the Haunt of Fear, Vault of Horror, and Crypt of Terror. This issue was used in both Frederick Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent, and by the New York Legislative Committee in their anti-comic activities. Johnny Craig does the cover and one story inside, while Harvey Kurtzman, Graham Ingels, and Al Feldstein also pitch in with interior art. Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $345; VF 8.0 value = $863.
