    Captain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC Apparent VF- 7.5 Slight (P) Cream to off-white pages. He wasn't the first patriotic superhero in comic books, but Cap is the one we think of first when the subject comes up. Jack "King" Kirby's legacy would have been assured even if Cap were the only character he ever created. The classic team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby handled the interior art, but two renowned sources, Overstreet and Gerber, differ in identifying the cover artist or artists. Overstreet suggests Joe Simon did the classic Hitler cover, while Gerber's The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books lists the combo of Jack Kirby pencils and Syd Shores inks. One of the most important comic books of all, not only introduced Captain America to comicdom, it also featured the first appearances of Cap's long-time sidekick, Bucky, and his long-time arch-nemesis, the Red Skull. Overstreet 2003 GD 2.0 value = $6,767; VG 4.0 value = $13,534; FN 6.0 value = $20,300; VF 8.0 value = $40,060.
