    Air Pirates Funnies #1 (Hell Comics Group, 1971) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white pages. This is one of the most important Underground comics ever published as it helped to set many of the parody laws that are still on the books. By spoofing Disney characters in ways that Uncle Walt never imagined, the Air Pirates became famous, or should we say infamous. It also got them sued by an army of lawyers, and the title folded after two issues. This is by far the highest-graded copy certified of a #1 by CGC to date (by a 9.8 to 9.2 margin!). CGC census 10/09: 1 in 9.8, none higher. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide NM 9.4 value = $100.
