    FS: Haunt of Fear 26 CGC 9.0 OW/W

    for a neat high grade non-Gaines copy. For those of you who don’t know, Gary Arlington is credited with opening the first comic book store and was highly influential in the underground comix scene in SF during the late 60s and 70s. He also happened to be a huge EC fan and collector, and many of his books were original owner copies (some were even sold with the original EC envelopes he received them in). I’m sure our resident experts could give a ton more details about him, but I at least wanted to give an overview

    FS: Haunt of Fear 26 CGC 9.0 OW/W

    Crime Suspenstories 20 CGC 9.2 OW Gaines File Copy (#2 of 12) Gaines cert is included. No recent GPA on high grade copies, but the mid-grade ones have been through the roof. A 6.0 sold in May for $1030 and a 4.0 went for $545. Current census: 88 total copies graded, 2 at 9.2, 4 higher. At least 2 of the 4 copies above this one are locked up in long term collections, so who knows when one of the others will come to the market. If this book is on your list, it’s time to man up Book is SOLD! As I said above, check or MO only for this one. Time payments are possible with 20% down and the rest within 90 days. Thanks for looking!

    I had COT 17 at 11, so definitely considered that one. This brings up an interesting trend where the value of the “traditionally” desirable ECs (COT 17, HOF 1, CP 15, VOH 12, etc) have increased as the overall PCH market has, but it seems like the “new trend” (see what I did there?) is for really dramatic increases on the books with desirable cover art (CSS 22, VOH 30, CSS 20, SSS 6). There haven’t been a whole lot of high grade copies of those that have sold lately, but I think we’d be surprised at some of the prices they’d bring (like Shock 6!).

    My list was based on value. I wouldn’t think there’d be too much difference between those two, but hey throw both lists out there!

    I’m too lazy to go back and look, but has anyone done a top 10 ECs list in this thread? Given that it seems like they’ve picked up steam in the market lately, I thought it might be fun to put one together. Other opinions welcome! 1. Crime Suspenstories 22 2. Weird Science Fantasy 29 3. Vault of Horror 12 4. Mad 1 5. Shock Suspenstories 6 6. Vault of Horror 30 7. Crime Suspenstories 20 8. Crime Patrol 15 9. War Against Crime 10 10. Vault of Horror 35
