    King Comics #1 (David McKay Publications, 1936) Condition: FR/GD. Popeye is featured on the cover of this premiere issue of a title that would run for almost two decades. Rare is definitely the word to use in reference to this book. It's one of the books that Overstreet doesn't even list a Near Mint price for, so forget about finding a copy in high-grade. Any complete copy of this book is a great find. The list of first appearances in this book is like a who's who of pre-Golden Age superstars, including Flash Gordon by Alex Raymond, Brick Bradford, Henry, and Mandrake the Magician. This copy's cover has become detached and there is tape the entire length of the spine. Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $1,250.
