My second thread - let's hope EC Comics are more popular than DC. 

A mixture of raw and slabbed this time. Please excuse any glare from the scanner on the pics, still trying to figure out the best settings. Now, the rules:

o   No Probies or Hall of Shame members.

o   Payment via Paypal.

o   Shipping: $15 for slabs and $10 for raw (in any quantity) in USA and Canada. US shipments will be sent USPS priority post and Canadian shipments will be sent by Canada Post (from the north side of the border). Overseas shipping at cost and only to established board members with references. I normally ship in 2-3 days.

o   No returns on graded books unless I have missed something major.

o   References: Have bought a ton of stuff (probably too much) on the boards if that counts for anything. Also occasionally sell on eBay as comic_gems

Haunt of Fear #20 – 3.5 (VG-)           $125

One of my favorite works by ‘Ghastly’ Graham Ingels – I’m guessing the creases to the cover were caused by some poor kid in the 1950s clutching the comic in fright as he read the terrifying tales within!

Shock Suspenstories #11 – 4.5 (VG+)                       $125

Cover by EC legend Johnny Craig. I’m guessing this is probably what would have happened if Ginger had been the only guest who signed up for that three-hour tour!

Shock Suspenstories #13 – CGC 3.5 $195   SOLD!

A hot comic lately, this issue features Frank Frazetta’s only solo story for EC. With a jolting Jack Kamen cover, this well-presenting copy also benefits from a well-placed date stamp and White pages!

Haunt of Fear #23 – CGC 6.0             $450   SOLD!

Captivating cover by ‘Ghastly’ Graham Ingels that presents very well for the assigned grade. Hard to find this issue in anything close to near mint condition with no known copies graded higher than 9.0 by CGC.

Vault of Horror #35 – CGC 6.0          $895   SOLD!

Chilling Craig cover with an unsuspecting wife finding an unexpected ‘gift’ under the Christmas tree. I’m betting her husband wound up on Santa’s naughty list!

Another well-presenting front dragged down in grade by the back. Only for sale due to a recent upgrade and tempted to keep!

This cover makes you realize how much Wrightson was influenced by Ingels...
