    America's Best Comics #1 (Nedor Publications, 1942) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. This first issue doesn't turn up very often -- CGC has only certified three copies to date, and this is the first copy we've seen in a grade this nice. Could we be looking at an uncredited Alex Schomburg cover? You be the judge, but it does look like his work to us, and Schomburg did draw many covers for Nedor (aka Better, aka Standard). The series featured the top heroes from the company's other books, Exciting Comics, Thrilling Comics, and Startling Comics. The top stars were the Black Terror and Doc Strange, pictured on the cover with their sidekicks Tim and Mike, respectively. Overstreet 2005 VG 4.0 value = $538; FN 6.0 value = $807. CGC census 1/05: 1 in 5.0, 1 higher.
