    Description

    Crime Illustrated #1 Gaines File Copy 5/11 (EC, 1955) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. It's hard to believe that Bill Gaines had four better copies in his files than this 9.8 beauty! Look at the white cover, the bright red and yellow inks, the sharp corners and the super-tight spine on our online scan. We think you'll be as impressed as we are! Joe Orlando cover and art. Reed Crandall, George Evans, and Graham Ingels art. Al Feldstein is credited as "Alfred E. Neuman." Overstreet 2013 NM- 9.2 value = $235. CGC census 5/14: 4 in 9.8, none higher.
