    Description

    Classic Comics #15 Uncle Tom's Cabin - Original Edition - Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (Gilberton, 1943) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. Here's the sole highest-graded copy to date of one of the most collectible issues of this series! The subject matter of the famous novel makes it controversial enough, but this comic version received a scathing review in Seduction of the Innocent, with author Fredric Wertham accusing it of reinforcing the very stereotypes that Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel seeks to dispel. By the way, this is one of the variant copies with a green root to the left of the cover price. Overstreet 2006 VF/NM 9.0 value = $641; NM- 9.2 value = $875. CGC census 10/06: 1 in 9.0, none higher. From the Crippen Collection.
