    Description

    Tales From the Crypt #20 Gaines File pedigree Certificate Missing (EC, 1950) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. The Crypt Keeper brings us this first issue of this title after the name change from The Crypt of Terror. This is the title that ushered in a wave of horror and terror upon America's unsuspecting youth, years later spawning a movie and HBO's TV show of the same title. Johnny Craig does his magic on this eerie cover of a man observing his own tombstone being chiseled. This fantastic issue features interior art by Craig, Al Feldstein and Ghastly Graham Ingels. This incredibly crisp copy is tied with three others as being the highest graded CGC copy to date. There is no Gaines File certificate accompanying this lot. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $1,350.
