    Description

    Tales of Terror Annual #3 (EC, 1953) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. Most likely the only copies of this issue that have been certified with higher grades by CGC were from the vaunted Gaines Files. The square bound format of the book made it dicey to preserve in such nice condition as seen here. Chances are if you ever had two or more copies of this, you didn't have two alike. Each issue was comprised of four complete comic books, generally from 1952 that had not sold originally on the newsstand. We're going to make a calculated guess that artists Feldstein, Johnny Craig, Jack Davis, Graham Ingels, and a few others are represented in the interior. Vault-Keeper, Crypt-Keeper, and Old Witch bondage/torture cover by Al Feldstein. Overstreet 2008 VF 8.0 value = $1,395; VF/NM 9.0 value = $2,048. CGC census 4/08: 3 in 8.5, 8 higher. From the Williamsport Collection.
