    Description

    Vault of Horror #13 Gaines File Pedigree (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 "The 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). Please note that while CGC designates this copy as having come from the Gaines File copies, no certificate is included. Overstreet 2019 NM- 9.2 value = $2,200. CGC census 8/19: 4 in 9.8, none higher.
