    Description

    Weird Fantasy #16 (#4) Gaines File Pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Harvey Kurtzman's story in this issue is set in 1970 and predicts: "Television is now everywhere! Every country in the world, every home, every person, watches television!" In addition to that prophetic piece, there's an Al Feldstein cover and interior art by Feldstein, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kamen, and Wally Wood. The issue was cited in Seduction of the Innocent -- not for graphic violence as one might expect, but for using slangy grammar! Note that while CGC identifies this as a Gaines file copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2019 NM- 9.2 value = $1,550. CGC census 8/19: 5 in 9.6, 6 higher.
