    Description

    Classic Comics #9 Les Miserables - First edition (Gilberton, 1943) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. Before there the musical was a gleam in the eye of Cameron Mackintosh, there was the comic book. This issue is considered "uncommon" by Gerber, but more than most other similarly indexed issues, appears to be especially scarce in high-grade. This probably has something to do with the excessive handling required by all that book report research. This is an original edition from 1943 and has a slick paper cover. Overstreet notes that there are two versions of this issue, one with a typical slick cover, and one with a rough, pulp-type cover. CGC makes no note of which version this is, but it looks to us like the slick cover version. To date, no other copies of this issue have been graded higher by CGC. Overstreet 2003 VF/NM 9.0 value = $750; NM 9.4 value = $975.
