    Description

    Weird Science #17 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1953) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Wally Wood's first work at EC came on this title, and he seemed at his best mixing the elements of outer space, monsters, and (of course) the renowned Wood women. This cover seemed particularly inspired. Wood also contributed story art in this issue, joined by fellow EC greats Al Williamson, Joe Orlando, and Jack Kamen. The issue was so good, it rated mention in Parade of Pleasure! A senses-numbing copy from the Gaines Files, only two other copies of issue #17 have managed a higher grade from CGC at NM+ 9.6. While CGC has certified this as a Gaines File copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $460.
