Wonderful copy!

What would you grade it at? Looks at least 8.0 from the pic, congrats! :applause:

It's higher grade but not sure what it would grade out at.  Has some small color breaking crease in the lower left corner of the book.  Otherwise book looks fantastic.  Retains it's original gloss and color interior White pages with bright colors.  Want to hold onto it raw for awhile.

Wow, don't think I've ever seen that book in this grade.  Just awesome!  What cold dead hand did you pry that from?

Absolutely! There are some great stories in this book and Everett at his peak at Atlas IMHO! All I can see is that left lower corner crunch as well, very sweet copy and one I would hold on to.

Great book. Congrats. High on my want list for sure. 

REALLY tough and one of the best Voodoo's IMO. The one that sold on eBay for $1600+ was a gem, and so is yours! There's now a 1.8 ish one on eBay, but not what I'd want to pay for that condition/appearance.

Scans are gone for me now, but that was indeed a sweet Venus #19. Never did get a copy -- was offered one years ago, but the chunk out of the cover was just too big for me, aesthetically.

Probably a good idea to take the scan down on a book like that as too many PM inquiries would follow.

Here is a sample of some of the great Everett art inside though...

When I saw this image of All-True Crime 27 at a recent HA auction, I had to have the book, but it was getting bid beyond what I wanted to pay, so I found one at Metropolis, made them an offer of $67, and here it B!  HA's went for $210, and it doesn't seem to be as nice as this one.  The electric chair in the forefront  makes this book just creepy, lol!

Agreed, I have a copy of this book as well. I should search out my scan. Very eerie cover.
