Talk about odd. Here is a Mexican Vault of Horror #37 edition.

My newest obsession and focus ... sci-fi EC's ... I suspect the horrors will be following suit shortly :ohnoez:

I've sold most of my ECs ( never any Two Fisted Tales, of course), but real collectors must retain a Wally Wood sci-fi cover example!
