    Description

    Adventure Comics #72 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1942) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. This important Golden Age key features the first comic work for DC by the acclaimed team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Whoever had S&K working for them had the best that the comics world had to offer, and Timely's loss was definitely DC's gain! S&K wrote and drew the Sandman story in this issue, and they soon made the character their own with their dynamic interpretation, so much so that Starman's days as star of the issue were numbered (this book does have a neat Starman cover by Jack Burnley, though). Other heroes seen in this issue are Hourman (with art by Bernard Baily) and the Shining Knight (drawn by Creig Flessel). As the best existing copy of a comic ranked among the 100 most valuable Golden Age books by Overstreet, it's a highly desirable prize indeed! Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $19,000. CGC census 9/09: 1 in 9.8, none higher.
