    Description

    The Thing! #2 River City pedigree (Charlton, 1952) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages. What is the Thing? Something lurking in the shadows, waiting for a chance to attack? Something that exists only in the half-remembered world of bad dreams, shrouded in the misty areas of our fevered brains? We can't say, but this much is apparent: The Thing! was Charlton's creepiest comic book, published during the heyday of horrific titles like Tales From the Crypt and This Magazine is Haunted. This prime example carries a River City pedigree, as well as being the highest CGC-graded copy to date. Now that really is something! Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $725. CGC census 9/05: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
