Value of Haunt of Fear Comic Books

Haunt of Fear Comic Book Price Guide

The notorious EC Comics, led by William Gaines, pushed the envelope of what was tasteful or appropriate for comic book readers.

Featuring decapitations, hanging, eye injuries, rotting corpses and zombies, EC went where others dared not to go.

Until they did. A rash of copycat publishers created ever-more-disturbing art and stories, until the Comics Code Authority clamped down on the practice.

Eventually, horror comics would come back in the 1970s and 80s, but the likes of Crypt of Terror and Shock SuspenStories were never seen again.
