My First EC

I was bitten by the EC bug years ago, but drifted away in favor of the superb Gemstone Reprints in the mid-90s. Why buy the originals when the reprints were available for $2 each?

Well, a recent series of the threads on the STL Message Boards have rekindled my interest in the original EC comics. I will certainly be looking at ECs at the National in NY on the 18th.

This the first EC I ever bought. I picked this up in the late 80s at Fox Creek, a small antique fair in Upstate New York. At $5, it's one of my best comic bargains ever.
