Description

    Vault of Horror #27 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1952) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. The slimy beast enveloping some poor soul on this cover predates the popular 1958 movie "The Blob," starring a young Steve McQueen. Nothing "slimy" about this copy, though -- it's as pristine as you'll ever find! It is in fact the highest-graded copy in CGC's census report for issue #27 to date. The usual great art can be found inside, by Johnny Craig, Jack Davis, George Evans, and Graham Ingels. While CGC has certified this book as a Gaines File Copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $400. CGC census 12/04: 2 in 9.8, none higher.
