Shock SuspenStories #11 (EC 1953) Golden Age Pre-Code Horror Johnny Craig PCH VG. Pre-code horror / golden age horror classic cover by Johnny Craig. Book includes work from list of golden-age greats: Al Feldstein, Jack Kamen, Reed Crandall, Marie Severin, Wally Wood... Not a pro-grader, see pics / below for condition. Nice looking copy of this nearly 70 year old book.
Colors pop, still has some gloss... Book has age related dirt and some light folds and dimples - would improve with a clean and press.
Nothing gnarly here - really an accumulation of wear-related defects. Front cover: edge chipping, edge and corner creases, reader creases along the spine... Can see the spine stress lines and a few horizontal tears near the staples. Spine has some rough ends but is complete. Cover is attached but pulling at both staples - need to handle carefully to avoid detach.
Back cover shows the age related dirt, can see those few horizontal tears at spine, there is a printer crease upper left at the woman's shoulder (not a defect), and there is an old store stamp that has been inked out at top edge. Both covers vertical edges have those micro reader tears here and there... Interior looks good - pages tight at staples, clean, colors look good.Feel free to ask any questions!
