    Description

    Startling Comics #49 (Better Publications, 1948) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages. Only one issue in the 53-issue run is rated more valuable than this one by Overstreet, and the #10 issue featuring the first appearance of the Fighting Yank just barely edges out #49. One look at this stunning, classic cover by Alex Schomburg (as "Xela") tells you why. Beautiful girl in bondage, a bad robot, a hero with a ray gun, an alien landscape... it doesn't get better than this! Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $5,400. CGC census 3/05: 2 in 9.4, none higher.
