ow/white pages Jack Davis werewolf cover; low distribution/last issue (last EC horror comic) Gaines File Copy Highest GradedTales from the Crypt #46 holds immense historical relevance as the final installment in the title’s groundbreaking run. Published during the height of the 1950s horror comics craze, this issue stands as a testament to the innovative storytelling and provocative artwork that characterized the series. With its gripping narratives and striking visuals, it epitomizes the boundary-pushing nature of the EC Comics line. However, the release of this issue also marked the end of an era, as public outcry and the impending implementation of the Comics Code Authority led to the demise of these influential horror titles. This issue is not only a captivating finale to a celebrated series, but also serves as a reminder of the historical impact and subsequent censorship that reshaped the comic book industry.
One of the five finest copies of Tales from the Crypt #46 listed on the CGC census, this 9.4 book is in amazing condition, lasting through nearly seven decades while avoiding any significant wear and tear. Hailing from the revered Gaines File Copy pedigree, this issue is not only in great shape but is also the last issue in the legendary run of the title, making it an important milestone, a pre-code horror book that was published after the inception of the CCA; representing the end of an era at EC, this is an important key.
