    Adventure Comics #70 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1942) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. This is the only copy graded above 9.0 by CGC to date, and it has cover colors so brilliant you could be forgiven for mistaking it for a reprint! A look at the yellow "Adventure Comics" field, unsullied by a dust shadow, foxing, or any other blemish for that matter, will make a believer out of you. Starman is the cover character, drawn by Jack Burnley. Just for fun, we'll note that this was the final appearance of the Federal Men, who first appeared way back in #2, when the title was still called New Comics. We fear that this Mile High might have spoiled us for other copies, and if you've met the same fate there is no alternative to trying your best to win this one! Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $3,050. CGC census 4/10: 1 in 9.6, none higher. From the Gary Keller Collection.
