Description

    Vault of Horror #40 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1954) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Only two other copies of this scarce last issue of Vault of Horror have been given a higher grade by CGC than this one. This copy comes from the historic EC file comic collection of William Gaines. The deep purple of this cover must have really stood out from among the myriad of titles on the comic racks at the time that it was originally distributed. Though minimalistic in execution this cover by Johnny Craig superbly conveys the final struggle between the vampire and his adversary as they both attempt to gain the upper hand. The interior artists in this issue are Graham Ingels, Bernie Krigstein, Johnny Craig, and Joe Orlando. This tight, bright copy will be a real gem for any EC fanatic. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $425.
