    Description

    Atomic Comics #2 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (Green Publishing Co., 1946) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. Though a number of atomic-themed comics debuted in the 1950s, this title hit newsstands in 1946, mere months after the first atom bomb was dropped. But as you can see from our cover scan, the concept of mutations caused by atomic power was present from the get-go. The cover artist is unknown, but we do know that the highly collectable Matt Baker drew an interior story. This issue received the "uncommon" designation in Gerber's Photo-Journal, and this is the highest-graded copy in the CGC census to date. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $1,775. CGC census 7/06: 1 in 9.4, none higher. From the Crippen Collection.
