Description

    Amazing Mystery Funnies #1 (Centaur, 1938) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. The highest-graded copy by a decent margin, with a 7.5 the next-highest on CGC's census. The very first issue of Amazing Mystery Funnies, which Overstreet called "the standard bearer of the Centaur line." Of note is that this sci-fi cover was the first published comic book work by the legendary Bill Everett. The issue is dated August 1938, just two months after Action Comics #1. To date, only eight copies have been given a Universal grade by CGC. Overstreet 2017 VF 8.0 value = $3,750; VF/NM 9.0 value = $6,625. CGC census 8/17: 1 in 8.5, none higher.
