    Description

    Vault of Horror #13 Gaines File pedigree 1/9 (EC, 1950) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. Here's one of the very earliest EC horror books (and only the second issue of the title, despite the numbering). Harvey Kurtzman wrote and drew the story "Island of Death," obviously based on the famous short story "Most Dangerous Game." Meanwhile, a dose of morphine figures in a story drawn by the team of Harry Harrison and Wally Wood (the book Tales of Terror says that the story may have been penciled by Jules Feiffer, of all people!). Other artists represented are Johnny Craig (who drew the "walking dead" cover), Al Feldstein, and Graham Ingels. There are less Gaines File copies of this issue than most (only nine), and this one ranks as the very best, which is further confirmed by the stellar CGC grade. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $1,350.
