    Description

    Weird Science #17 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1953) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. A pretty grim and scary corpse-filled cover by Wally Wood is the sort of thing that outraged legions of parents and earned this issue a place in the notorious Parade of Pleasure, which decried the sex and violence prevalent in comics at the time. Despite the controversy, it's easy to appreciate the quality of the stories inside and the remarkable state of preservation of this comic. This issue has interior art by Wood, Jack Kamen, and Al Williamson. Note that while CGC has certified this book as a Gaines File copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $520. CGC census 2/05: 3 in 9.4, 2 higher.
