    Description

    Tales From the Crypt #20 Gaines File pedigree 11/11 (EC, 1950) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. After three issues as Crypt of Terror, EC's original "New Trend" horror comic returned with a new title, one which eliminated the word "Terror." Publisher Bill Gaines must have figured there would be enough terror between the covers -- and he was right! This, then, is the first issue of Tales From the Crypt, one of the best known and loved horror comics of all time. This issue's artists include Johnny Craig (cover and story), Al Feldstein, Jack Kamen, and Graham Ingels. This primo pedigreed copy is so nice, it's... scary! Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $1,625. CGC census 12/05: 2 in 9.4, 4 higher.
