    Adventure Comics #72 Rockford pedigree (DC, 1942) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. This seminal issue would introduce DC readers to the art of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby for the first time, in the Sandman storyline, which would dominate the large logo issues, going forward. Jack Burnley's cover is the last Starman cover in this series. This copy has only slight wear to the corners keeping it from a higher grade. The deep, rich cover inks on this pedigree copy are strikingly bright! Comes with the Rockford certificate of authenticity. Overstreet 2007 VF 8.0 value = $7,718; VF/NM 9.0 value = $13,359. CGC census 1/08: 1 in 8.5, 3 higher.
