    Description

    Vault of Horror #12 (#1) White Mountain pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. Overstreet calls this first issue "scarce" (issues #1 through #11 were EC's War Against Crime). Historically, Vault of Horror ties with Crypt of Terror as the first horror comic. This strongly solid specimen has a lot going for it; its colors are extremely vivid, its pages maintain off-white vibrancy, and only minor spine stress keeps this rarity from grading higher. Plus, there's art by Johnny Craig, Al Feldstein, and Harvey Kurtzman. Don't miss the Mad-style nods to Bill Gaines on the cover! Includes a certificate of authenticity from the White Mountain collection. CGC notes, "'Feb. 20, 1950' written on first page in pen." Overstreet 2004 VF 8.0 value = $3,375.
