    Description

    Red Seal Comics #16 Big Apple pedigree (Chesler, 1946) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. This harmless-looking comic, with its "country bumpkin" cover, must have something going for it, 'cause it caught the eye of Dr. Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent. Overstreet spells it out: "Outside the forbidden pages of de Sade, you find draining a girl's blood only in children's comics," referring to the "Drug Club" story presented here. George Tuska is listed as an artist for this issue. Needless to say, this pedigreed NM copy (the only example of this issue currently certified by CGC) is a real honey -- if you can just get past those crazy hillbillies on the cover! Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $825. CGC census 7/05: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
