    Description

    Adventure Comics #72 (DC, 1942) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. This issue contains the first Joe Simon and Jack Kirby artwork for DC, a combination that would thrill comic readers for decades to come! Jack Burnley did the Shining Knight cover, and Simon, Kirby, Burnley, and Bernard Baily handled the interior art for the book. It's one of the top five copies on CGC's census for the issue, and it's been almost a decade since we've seen a copy with a grade this high. Overstreet 2018 VF/NM 9.0 value = $13,050; NM- 9.2 value = $19,000. CGC census 4/19: 2 in 9.0, 3 higher. From the Wartime Comic Find, an Original-Owner Collection.
