Description:
All Winners Comics #2 Billy Wright pedigree (Timely, 1941) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. How could this fail to bring a smile to any Golden Age fan's face? The black cover looks fantastic here, and so does the light-colored "ground" at the bottom which is usually easily smudgeable -- this is a 9.2 for a reason! And this book is a great example of Golden Age fare -- the art may have been crude but this patriotic cover is still stirring, and must have been irresistible to kids back then. The Human Torch, Captain America, and the Sub-Mariner scarcely need an introduction of course. But note also that the Whizzer is wearing his very early costume and making one of his first appearances close on the heels of his U.S.A. Comics debut. And this early Destroyer appearance (that's him in the striped pants) was released at the same time as that character's debut in Mystic Comics #6. Jack Binder cover art. Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $9,500. CGC census 12/11: 2 in 9.2, none higher.
