Description

    Vault of Horror #12 (#1) White Mountain pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. Tied with its EC companion, Crypt of Terror #17 as the first New Trend horror title, this issue is considered "scarce" by Overstreet. This is the first of 29 covers that Johnny Craig created for the title (all of them!), and in this issue Craig, Wally Wood, Al Feldstein, and Harvey Kurtzman provided the interior art. This pedigree is one of the most renowned for early '50s books, and in this case, with only four copies earning higher grade certification from CGC to date, offers one of the finest copies of a key EC issue. CGC notes, "'Feb. 20, 1950' written on 1st page in pen." Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $3,604. CGC census 3/06: 4 in 8.0, 4 higher.
