    Description

    Blue Beetle #54 The Promise Collection Pedigree (Fox Features Syndicate, 1948) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. The Overstreet "classic" scantily clad "good girl" cover wraps stories with such titillating titles as "The Vanishing Nude!" and "The House of a Thousand Corpses!" Now tell me, what kid, back in 1948, could resist such an intriguing comic? Master Golden Age artist Jack Kamen did art for the issue that also contains a hanging panel, and was mentioned in Dr. Fredric Wertham's study on the role that comics play in child delinquency, Seduction of the Innocent -- gee, we wonder why? This lovely high grade copy is tied with two others for CGC's top honors. Overstreet 2020 NM- 9.2 value = $12,000. CGC census 6/21: 3 in 9.4, none higher.
