Master Comics #1 Values
Publisher: Fawcett, 1940
About Master Comics #1This oversized comic (10.5" x 14") made history by almost causing a lawsuit! DC thought that Master Man, the title character, was a little too similar to their hero Superman, and once they threatened to sue, Fawcett withdrew the character after just six issues. This was just the second Fawcett series after Whiz Comics, and it offered 52 huge pages of action for 15¢, but its size made it difficult to store and thus to preserve in nice condition, making high-grade copies all but non-existent. Gerber "7".
