    Description

    Shock Illustrated #3 (EC, 1956). Super-rare EC "Picto-Fiction" (text stories with numerous illustrations); only 100 copies of this issue were produced and given out at the EC offices. The rest of the print run was destroyed because Gaines couldn't afford to have them bound! Terrific artwork by EC stalwarts Graham Ingels, Reed Crandall, Jack Kamen, and George Evans with a fabulous cover painting by Rudy Nappi. This is one of the rarest EC books, and the few copies that exist rarely come on to the open market. This is an excellent copy, a solid FN+. It has a 1/2" split at the top of the spine, moderate spine stress, light creasing (does not break ink) in both the top right and bottom right corners, and has a moderately bumped top left corner. The cover still has outstanding clarity and color. Magazine format. From the Grant Geissman Collection. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $268; NM 9.4 value = $850.
