    All Star Comics #1 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Having spotted the presence of a 9.6 copy of this issue on CGC's census report, we had speculated "wouldn't that be nice to have." Well, we didn't know the half of it, as this copy has exceeded all of our expectations. It's a dazzler, and we could sit here for a long time just soaking in the view. Colors, spine, edges, page quality... there's no finding fault with this one! Putting together a run of All-Star today would be quite a challenge, but it's one that many aspire to, and to put it mildly, acquiring this copy would be a great way to get things started. The concept of the series was to put together an anthology featuring top heroes from DC Comics as well as All-American Comics (which was essentially a separate branch of DC). So to run down the lineup of characters and artists, there's the Flash (E. E. Hibbard), Hawkman (Sheldon Moldoff), Hourman (Bernard Baily), and the Spectre (also drawn by Baily), as well as Sandman, Biff Bronson, Red White and Blue, and Gary Concord, Ultra-Man. The first five mentioned above would go on to be founding members of the Justice Society of America just two issues later. There's no DC collection that wouldn't be improved with the addition of this sterling specimen. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $19,500. CGC census 7/05: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
