“Eerie #1 (Avon, 1947) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. This is considered by many to be the first all-horror comic book, and it even features a bondage cover! Joe Kubert and Bob Fujitani added interior art to the book that is currently the #2 issue on Overstreet’s Top Ten Horror Comics list. Overstreet 2021 VF 8.0 value = $6,285. CGC census 11/21: 7 in 8.0, 10 higher. From the Black Cat Collection. This is the legendary comic book that started the horror comics trend of the 1940s-50s, as well as the first horror comic with original content, long before the Comics Code was introduced. A man is haunted by the ghost of a stuffed tiger; An island is populated with flesh-eating lizards; A man disposes of his nagging wife with a subway train, but then is haunted by visions and hallucinations. The backup story is a humorous tale starring Goofy Ghost. Stories by sci-fi legend Henry Kuttner, working under one of his many pseudonyms. This was the only issue of this run, but the title returned as a regular series with Eerie (1951 Avon Series) #1.”
