    Great copy Caleb! Much sharper than mine!

    To be fair, I wasn't actively looking for just it, was just keeping an eye out for any PCH I didn't have, and could afford, during that time. It finally popped up!

    It's interesting to note that of the books I've scanned so far, not that many feature witches; while I've scanned lots of skull/skeleton books! But these seem to fit the witch category:

    MA 12 is my favorite issue of that run, very hard to find in anything approaching decent shape!

    Don't have my Tormented #2 handy, but used to have two copies of #2, traded one away

    Haunted Thrills is one of the best titles IMO. Keep looking for a Tormented #1, it'll pop up eventually! I think I finally got mine after 15 years of looking.

    Another EC mystery is why they saw fit to do a Crypt-Keeper origin, an Old Witch origin, but nothing for poor ol' VK (I am betting because Johnny Craig may haven't have found the time? But unknown -- some EC experts may have an idea why.) On the other hand, VK eventually got Drusilla to come hang out at his cozy Vault, which couldn't have made CK none too happy. I doubt the OW was jealous though.

    It just makes me a bit happy to know Andy and I are both in need of an issue (WAC 10)! Agree that the WAC 10 is HTF, period. I do have a copy of CP 15 I picked up years and years ago from Ted at Superworld. One of my favorite books still (still needs to be scanned.)

    Do you ever store your raw books in top loaders ?

    Top loaders are fine for an extra layer of physical protection, so long as there's mylar and board at the core, and they don't move about easily inside (but you don't want them too snug either -- depending on the book, two backing boards might be one too many.) Thin extender boards might be useful -- basically just common sense should be applied.
  11. I always thought this cover was a little underappreciated; but not by me!

    Not to be outdone by greenish tones, this cover brings deep blues to the table...

    Peering in from the outside -- perhaps from the wavering branch of a tree? Ghastly was a master of composition!
