    Weird Science #18 Gaines File pedigree 2/12 (EC, 1953) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. "Mars is Heaven," one of EC's best Ray Bradbury adaptations, is featured in this issue. Wally Wood, Al Williamson, Jack Kamen, and Joe Orlando all contribute story art. This issue's cover was printed with an unstable magenta ink, resulting in a fading of the red colors on most existing copies (including this one, from publisher Bill Gaines' collection). As a result, to date only one copy (in 9.2) has been certified by CGC higher than this example. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $279; VF/NM 9.0 value = $420. CGC census 5/06: 3 in 8.5, 1 higher.
