Bill Everett, Marvel Tales #114. I've never been a huge fan of multi-panel covers, but it's hard not to like this one.

I lean towards Atlas, but Ditko is right up there, too.

This is one of those "why the hell did they do that?" books.

I purchased this book not too long ago from my LCS while it was still in the slab,... I liberated it and placed it along with the label in a Mylites2/Fullback. Notice the almost spine length single strip of tape. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this book other than the obvious upper right corner crease, rounded corners, etc. But the cover and inside pages are solid with the staples. Evidently someone figured they were doing the book a favor. We've all seen it before.

That's a shame. It still presents great, though!

That is awesome! I like Ditko's horror stuff more than any of the supers.

Can't go wrong with Cole!

I think I forgot I had this Everett cover Weird Worlds until I came across the scan.

@docstrange Very nice tight/clean book, and one of my alltime EC favorites as well.

My copy is on page 2 and as you can see needs a serious upgrade.

There's a lot of nice looking pre-code horror books in this thread so far. Congrats to you all. I love the covers of these old books. I only have a couple pre-code EC comics right now, but I thought I share one of them. It's not high grade, but I'm glad to have a copy.

@GradedKeyComics: Grade isn't everything. My Crypt #33 is in similar condition, but the origin of the Crypt-Keeper in the deliciously-titled "Lower Berth" is one of the best EC yarns of all and worth having in any grade.

I have many low to mid grade pre code horror books. Here's one I got a few years ago at SDCC. Love this cover

I'm perfectly happy with low-mid grade on my PCH. Time for more Marvel Tales!

Two of my (filler) Pre-Code Pity Purchases that I inspected prior...

Cover is detached and there are 2 extra staples in the book, and other stuff. But it presents really well in a Mylites2. In 10-12 years when I begin selling books again, I'll probably throw this one in as a Freebie!

The guy on the cover has some very serious issues to deal with!




Another detached cover (filler) of a copy I don't own yet, and will probably be another Freebie later on. Interesting thing is the cover appears to be as fried as the user.

Very nice. I never cared much for the Dead of Night reprint version but the original Harry Anderson is great!

Do we have any Mystics yet?

I agree. The reprints are nowhere as nice as the originals with the deep colors.

@Pre_Coder @vaultkeeper @PhilMaurice Thank you. I wanted to get a copy of this after re-watching "Lower Berth" on DVD. I love that show.

The tape pull really kills this one.
