    Description

    Mad #18 Gaines File pedigree Certificate Missing (EC, 1954) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. One of the more unusual among the unusual covers of comics' first satirical book is this connect-the-dots cover by Harvey Kurtzman. There seem to be less file copies of this issue in Near Mint and better (as certified by CGC) than in other issues. The Near Mint Minus here is the highest grade assigned by CGC yet for the issue. There is no Gaines File certificate accompanying this lot. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $475.
