    Adventure Comics #72 Rockford pedigree (DC, 1942) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to 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 the Starman cover and associated story), Creig Flessel (drawing the Shining Knight) and Bernard Baily (who handled art chores on Hourman). Comes with the Rockford certificate of authenticity. Overstreet 2007 VF 8.0 value = $7,718; VF/NM 9.0 value = $13,359. CGC census 6/07: 1 in 8.5, 3 higher.
