    Shock Illustrated #3 (EC, 1956) CGC FN- 5.5 Cream to off-white pages. Here's the last non-Mad EC publication, and one that didn't ever make it to newsstands. A few copies (Overstreet says 100) were bound by hand, and finding one of those is the toughest challenge for the EC completist. Cover artist Rudy Nappi is probably best known for the many Hardy Boys covers he painted for Grosset and Dunlap -- of course, more adult subject matter is dealt with here. The interior art is by EC standbys Reed Crandall, George Evans, Jack Kamen, and Graham Ingels. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $312. CGC census 12/05: 1 in 5.5, 6 higher.
