    Sad Sack Comics #1 File Copy (Harvey, 1949) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages. This amazing copy, which has been recently submitted to CGC, currently occupies the top spot in their census for this book. The reason Harvey fans will go to great lengths to get this issue: it's got the first appearance of Little Dot, who would go on to star in her own comic for over 20 years. But Sad Sack topped Dot when it came to longevity, as this series produced Harvey's longest continuous comic book title run, 287 issues! One reason why this first issue is hard to find is because it featured Sad Sack as a civilian, an unwelcome change at the time to fans who loved his adventures as a soldier and were loath to spend their dimes to see him in this new role. And that's despite a great infinity cover by George Baker! The swift kick to the pants shown here mirrors what most comic dealers would give anyone offering only the Guide price for a high-grade copy; for our part, we expect spirited bidding when this one comes up for auction. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $900. CGC census 3/06: 1 in 9.4, none higher.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
