    Description

    Vault of Horror #18 Gaines File pedigree 9/12 (EC, 1951) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. The horror comics produced by EC Comics are arguably the best ever. Graham Ingels and Jack Kamen, along with other great artists, illustrated gut-wrenching stories which have influenced every medium using the horror format. The Gaines file copies are generally acknowledged as the best in existence. This issue has an excellent cover by Johnny Craig. The look of terror on the man's face contrasts nicely with the romantic, unsuspecting features of the woman, as the ghoul rises from the well behind them. This copy is nearly pristine with exceptional gloss, and earns CGC's highest grade yet for this issue. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $580.
