    Adventure Comics #72 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1942) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. Jack Burnley's last cover of the run ranks among the best of DC Golden Age, utilizing bondage and the ever-popular mad scientist. Adventure Comics #72 is also the first Simon and Kirby Sandman, who would take over the title for the remaining large logo issues. Simon and Kirby were the Dynamic Duo of the Golden Age, and this book was their introduction to DC. This is by far the highest copy graded, and being the Mile High/Edgar Church copy, it's a pretty safe bet that there will never be a nicer copy. Every once in awhile you land a copy of a book that tells you that your incessant search for an upgrade is over... this is that book! Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $14,000.
