    Captain America Comics #76 (Atlas, 1954) Condition: VF+. We speculated that this could be the finest known copy of Cap's comeback issue when it was last auctioned a year ago, and though we've seen nice "Atlas superhero revival" books in the meantime, none have equaled this copy, which can't be encapsulated by CGC because of an overhang. For comparison's sake, the top copy on CGC's census is VF- 7.5. The pages are an appealing off-white to white, and a bit of rust on the staples is the only flaw of any consequence. The first issue of this series after a four-year hiatus has a great "commie-smashing" cover by an unknown artist, plus story art by a very well-known artist, namely John Romita Sr. in his first go-round at Atlas/Marvel! The Human Torch and Toro also appear. Overstreet 2008 VF 8.0 value = $838; VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,394.
