    Adventure Comics #36 (DC, 1939) CGC FN- 5.5 Off-white to white pages. This is a very tough book to find -- it's just the second copy CGC has certified, blue-label or otherwise, the Mile High copy being the first! The Gerber Photo-Journal gives it a scarcity rating of "7." While this copy does have spine splits at the top and bottom (approximately .75" in each case) it presents extremely well in the holder. In 12 years of auctioning comics, the Mile High and a coverless copy were the only other ones we had seen, so think twice before passing up this early DC, cover-dated March, 1939. Overstreet 2013 FN 6.0 value = $900. CGC census 11/13: 1 in 5.5, 1 higher.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 918120001 and purchase grader's notes if available.
