    Description

    DC 100-Page Super Spectacular #4 Weird Mystery Tales (DC, 1971) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. This was the first issue of the title and also pre-dates the "Super-Spectaculars" that were integrated into regular DC series a couple of years later. As to why the first issue was #4, even DC insider E. Nelson Bridwell cited "reasons I can't go into -- because I don't quite understand them myself." For reasons that are fairly obvious -- a thick square bound book with a black cover, front and back, this Bronze Age issue is nearly impossible to find in grades above 8.0 (only about 25 copies to date). And of course, the striking Bernie Wrightson cover would make this a desirable book even without all of the above. Also, it's surprising how seldom we find this issue in any grade. While there are other great Bronze Age books in this auction, this may be the most intriguing one of the bunch! Overstreet 2013 NM- 9.2 value = $500. CGC census 2/14: 3 in 9.6, none higher.
