    Description

    Crypt of Terror #18 Gaines File pedigree 3/10 (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 in the series since the title had changed to Crime Patrol with issue #7. Confused? Okay, here goes: the series started as International Comics, changed to International Crime Patrol, became Crime Patrol, then Crypt of Terror, before finally settling on Tales From the Crypt. Interior art comes from Craig, Wood, Feldstein, and Kurtzman. This is an absolutely brilliant copy, practically unimprovable, and the highest grade CGC has awarded to a copy of issue #18. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $2,100.
