    Blue Beetle #54 (Fox Features Syndicate, 1948) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. Must... write... description but can't... stop... looking at... cover! Seriously, while many "good girl" cover fans would point to one of the Phantom Lady issues as the pinnacle of all things va-va-voom-ish, we'd say it's time for the stunning image that graces Blue Beetle #54 to get its due. What's surprising is that this cover hasn't been attributed to one of the usual "good girl" aces like Jack Kamen or Matt Baker; it certainly measures up to anything those two ever did. Dr. Fredric Wertham featured the issue in the book Seduction of the Innocent with the comment, "children call these 'headlights' comics." Not just children, Doc! Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $806; VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,240. CGC census 3/05: 1 in 8,5, 2 higher.
