Classic Cover of the Week 6/27/16
New Week, New Covers!!
THE HAUNT OF FEAR #15
It's been far too long since I have shown off an EC cover. HOF 15 features a classic Craig picture that is both simple and creepy. Bear in mind this was 1950 and the very beginning of “New Trend” comics. Been looking for 3 years and have seen a single copy in acceptable condition online or at shows.
Listed as scarce in OSPG as well as the Gerber Guide, there are still 48 Universal copies on the CGC census with an average grade of 7.69. As usual with Gaines File Copies, the average is a bit on the higher side. 6 9.8s at the top and a lone 2.5 at the bottom.
SHELF DATE of May 1950
WEIRD COMICS #2
One of the lesser known Lou Fine covers. Rarely seen in auction, and coveted by true fans. Not sure where this cover even falls as far as genre goes, and neither do most folks, they just know they want it.
4 Universal Copies with an average of 5.13. A 9.0, 6.0, 3.5 and 2.5.
As always, thanks for looking, folks!
