    Description

    Crypt of Terror #18 Gaines File pedigree 1/10 (EC, 1950) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. Cover artist Johnny Craig was 24 years old when he created this cover, typically clean, understated, and oh so creepy. Craig was already an EC veteran of three years here, and had drawn every cover of this series since the title had changed to Crime Patrol with issue #7. Interior art comes from Craig, Wood, Feldstein, and Kurtzman. This is an absolutely brilliant example with the highest grade CGC has awarded to a copy of issue #18. It is also the #1 Gaines File copy as ranked by Bob Overstreet, quite probably making it the finest copy in existence! Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $2,100.
