Mailman just brought me a new EC! Been a while since I read it. The “Dog Food” story by Crandall is a real standout. 

Down to 3 to be done with this run again. Figure I will probably do it this year.

Yeah, "Dogfood" was a horror tale alright. Coulda been in either Vault or TFTC.

 I loved "Key Chain", illustrated by Krigstein. His style was perfect for the story.

Hi guys!

So I was looking at buying a tales from the crypt book and couldnt find what the insides looked liked.

Does anyone have one of these and  could I see some interiors? Or any other info?

For the record I just bought it since it was $5 and has a awesome Jack Davis cover!

Ok so here is what the insides of that TFTC book looks like. Its just the story told in written form with a few panels. 

Also I thought I was getting an upgradeon this Panic 7 but it had an undisclosed detached cover... this is 2 ECs in a row! If you need a filler copy let me know..

I wish I could react to a post twice; a "Like" for showing us the inside of the TFTC book and a "Sad" for the detached cover Panic.

Reminds me of the “Meat Tooth” ad!

I cant find out how many of the TFTC books there are...Ive seen 6 and a few others that dont have a # but look like the same thing. They are from "Bullseye Books".

Found at a local store today:

I saw that on ebay and thought about getting one. But it was $45.

I was so excited to get this today as I’ve been wanting a copy for a while now. When I opened it up and was counting the pages I noticed that it was missing half a page and a full page!

this is the third book in a row that I have bought on eBay that has been missed stated or the seller was unaware of the defects. Contacted the seller who does not except returns but I am hoping that he will.

You guys can all find it on eBay but nowhere in the description or the item title does it say it is incomplete at all. Hopefully he takes it back with no problems...

Great book, but really sucks about the missing pages. 
If they refuse to accept the return (or give a whopping huge partial refund), please out them here. I want to avoid them.

What a pizzer! Not even readable. Yeah, I have the same problem on eBay in the past year or so. Interior problems or incomplete with no notation of such. I would say one in three books are having to go back because of this. Hard to “grade by the picture” when the interior isn’t pictured. 

I just DO NOT BID on auctions from 1) obviously not comic people, 2) “no returns”, 3) “I am not a professional grader, look at the pictures” or people with anything but 100% pos feedback. I don’t care how appealing the book is or how bad I want it. No gambling for me, I seem to suck at it. 

By the way, if you pay with PayPal, “no returns” means nothing. All you have to do is file as not as described. It doesn’t hurt to attach a couple pictures  to your request.

Want a partial? Up to you but I would send it back...

Oh, if you file on him, HE pays the return postage. All you are out is your time and aggravation repacking it and going to the post office. 

I finally bought my first book on Instagram. Guess what? Centerfold out and not noted.

First purchase on Etsy, got canceled by the seller. I think he did some research after I bought it and realized he shouldn’t have priced it at Guide...

Buying books has gotton real hard for me. My best source is right here on the boards. Luckily, I can see a little light in the near future for shows.
