EC's Shock Illustrated

Shock Illustrated was part of EC's short-lived "Picto-Fiction" line. The third issue was printed but publisher William Gaines could not afford to have them bound. The publisher bound 100 to 200 copies of that issue and they were given away or sold to fans who ordered the issue. It remains a holy grail for many EC collectors.
