TALES FROM THE CRYPT #34
Grade: 5.0 VG/FN

FEB 1953; Cream pages. A wax museum is always a great setting for horror, and Jack Davis' cover and the accompanying story don't disappoint. Other highlights include an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's 'There Was An Old Woman' with Graham Ingels art. George Evans and Jack Kamen also contribute artwork. The issue was used in the book Parade of Pleasure. From the Gary Arlington collection, known for bright colors and supple pages. COA included.

TALES FROM THE CRYPT #35
Grade: 6.5 FN +
Price: $400

APR 1953; Cream to off white pages. It's fitting that E.C.'s most versatile artist was assigned cover duties on the most recognizable horror title of all for 18 consecutive issues. It would undoubtedly have been longer but Dr. Wertham (sigh) came along.... Davis' work can also be found on the interior, along with that of Joe Orlando, Jack Kamen, and Graham Ingels. From the Gary Arlington collection, known for bright colors and supple pages. COA included.

Here comes a biggie EC, albeit, low grade, but a biggie!

TALES OF TERROR ANNUAL #2
Grade: 1.0 FR
Price: $1,000

1952; Cover split and detached, reattached with tape. No missing pages. Al Feldstein cover. These wonderful squarebound annuals contain four remainder books (comics that didn't sell the previous year). Consequently, each issue annual is different, and you never know what you're going to get except horrific stories drawn by the likes of Ghastly Graham Ingels, Harvey Kurtzman, and Jack Kamen. From the Gary Arlington collection, known for bright colors and supple pages. COA included.

VAULT OF HORROR #18
Grade: 6.0 FN
Price: $400

APR 1951; Cream to off white pages. The horror comics produced by EC Comics are arguably the best ever. Graham Ingels and Jack Kamen, and other great artists, illustrated gut-wrenching stories which have influenced every medium using the horror format. This issue has an excellent cover by Johnny Craig. The look of terror on the man's face contrasts nicely with the romantic, unsuspecting features of the woman, as the ghoul rises from the well behind them. From the Gary Arlington collection, known for bright colors and supple pages. COA included.
