    Description

    Adventure Comics #72 (DC, 1942) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white pages. Simon and Kirby's first work for DC makes this a key issue, as it kicked off a memorable run for the most famous creative duo of the Golden Age. S&K wrote and drew the Sandman story, taking over the character shortly after he'd been revamped to become more "superhero-like" and given a sidekick in Sandy the Golden Boy. The other artists contributing to the issue include Jack Burnley (drawing Starman), Creig Flessel (drawing the Shining Knight), and Bernard Baily (who handled art chores on Hourman). Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $7,400. CGC census 1/10: 1 in 7.5, 5 higher.
