EC Comics caused so much uproar and controversy in the 1950s that the company was almost single-handedly responsible for the creation of the CCA, a censorship panel that helped to nearly destroying the comic book industry in the period before the Silver Age. Thanks to EC’s provocative imagery and grisly output, they have become a tried and true cult phenomenon, a favorite of comic fans and collectors of horror ephemera in general, and Haunt of Fear was one of the titles that helped build the publisher into a powerhouse before their forced transformation into the purveyors of the even more successful Mad Magazine. Haunt of Fear #6 contains several terrifying tales of murder and mayhem, with some form of coffin serving as a uniting thread amongst the tales created by such giants in the industry as Johnny Craig, Wally Wood, Bill Gaines, Al Feldstein, and Jack Kamen, with a special guest appearance by Ray Bradbury.

One of the highest graded copies known, this QES-certified comic hails from the Gaines File Copy pedigree recognized for the incredibly well-preserved books stashed away by one of the main creative forces behind EC’s mythological output. There’s really not much more to say about a 9.8 copy of a 70-year-old comic except that it is perfect in nearly every way imaginable, with no visible defects, amazing colors, immaculate construction, just simply wondrous to behold.
