    Weird Science #18 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1953) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. A great mushroom cloud cover by Wally Wood, with interior artwork by Wood, Jack Kamen and Al Williamson makes this issue a real favorite of collectors and readers alike. There is currently only one copy of this issue that has been graded higher by CGC, which indicates that this is a tough issue to find in grade. While CGC has certified this as a Gaines File copy, there is no certificate accompanying this lot. Overstreet 2003 VF 8.0 value = $255; VF/NM 9.0 value = $358.
