    Two-Fisted Tales #18 Gaines File pedigree 6/7 (EC, 1950) CGC NM 9.8 Off-white pages. This is the first issue of Two-Fisted Tales, the brainchild of Harvey Kurtzman. Unlike most war comics of the time, Two-Fisted Tales transcended knee-jerk patriotism and stared right into the eyes of the tough moral questions raised by war. This is an unbelievably beautiful 9.8 copy -- truly a pristine specimen of perhaps the rarest Gaines File Copies (only seven copies saved), except for Vault of Horror #12. They simply don't come any better than this. Al Feldstein, Wally Wood, and Johnny Craig contributed to this issue. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $1,000.
