    Narrative Illustration: The Story Of The Comics #nn (EC, 1942) CGC VG+ 4.5 Tan to off-white pages. Overstreet calls this "very rare," and while we're among the biggest EC fans around, we had never seen a copy here at Heritage until recently. This has 16 text pages by M. C. Gaines, whom some call the father of comics, and there's a 12-page comic insert. The comic material inside consists of "The Story of Saul" (which also saw publication in Picture Stories from the Bible) and "The Minute Man Answers The Call," the latter with art by Sheldon Moldoff. Note that Overstreet terms its stated value an "estimated value" and doesn't tie it to a specific grade. Overstreet notes, "3 center wraps detached." Overstreet 2005 "estimated value" (see note above) = $1,500. CGC census 12/05: 2 in 4.5, 1 higher.
