    Description

    Weird Science #5 Gaines File pedigree 6/10 (EC, 1951) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. Fresh from 1951 to you is this unbelievable Gaines File copy. Ah, the Gaines Files! Why didn't we think of saving copies right off the press and carefully preserving them for decades... maybe 'cause we bought funny books to read and read over again and keep in our back pockets...and 'cause we didn't have access to the printing presses! Al Feldstein's atomic explosion cover still scares us, but the colors are absolutely brilliant. Feldstein, Wally Wood, Harvey Kurtzman, and Jack Kamen provided the interior story art for this early issue. Overstreet 2007 NM- 9.2 value = $985. CGC census 10/07: 4 in 9.8, 1 higher.
