Description

    Vault of Horror #13 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Forget the #13 issue number for a sec -- this is essentially issue #2 of the title. The numbering had continued from the War Against Crime series that ran through 11 issues. Astonishing cover colors -- in part because of the unusual use of the yellow logo against a purple background, and in part due to this copy being from the Gaines File stash. Johnny Craig provided the suitably macabre cover, and co-conspirators Al Feldstein, Graham Ingels, Harvey Kurtzman, and Wally Wood drew the interior stories, including a morphine story. CGC has certified this as from the Gaines Files, but no certificate accompanies the book. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $1,745. CGC census 4/09: 3 in 9.6, 3 higher.
