    Adventure Comics #38 (DC, 1939) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. If you'd like a real collecting challenge, you should get started on an Adventure #32-39 run. None of these has more than four copies on the CGC census, and each is offered for sale about as frequently as the Olympic Games takes place. When you do find one, a mid-grade copy such as this is the best you can hope for, in fact the one higher-graded copy of #38 (the Mile High) is just a 7.5. CGC credits the cover art to Creig Flessel. Overstreet 2009 FN 6.0 value = $630; VF 8.0 value = $1,176. CGC census 4/10: 1 in 7.0, 1 higher.
