    Boy Explorers Comics #2 (Harvey, 1946) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. This Joe Simon and Jack Kirby issue (32 pages, measuring 5.5" x 8.5") is rated "rare" by Overstreet, and Gerber assigned it an "8." The flood of comic book titles onto the market, by major publishers, immediately after the end of wartime paper rationing, shut out smaller competitors, resulting in this issue being distributed to mail subscribers only. This is undoubtedly one of the toughest items to find for the Jack Kirby completist, Harvey collectors, and S&K fans. Rarity-hunters should note that this copy is the highest-graded of only three copies certified by CGC to date -- the others are a PR 0.5 and VF/NM 9.0. Overstreet 2013 NM- 9.2 value = $2,000. CGC census 5/14: 1 in 9.2, none higher.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 916861013 and purchase grader's notes if available.
