    Classics Illustrated #43 Great Expectations - HRN 62 (Gilberton, 1947) CGC Qualified NM- 9.2 Cream to off-white pages. This second edition, line-drawn cover issue of Charles Dickens' classic novel is a real grabber, and this copy's got a very colorful and glossy cover. The reason this issue wasn't reprinted again and again like other Classics is because the first few pages show a child being threatened with a knife by the character Magwitch. Fredric Wertham used the issue in Seduction of the Innocent, saying, "Am I correct in classifying this as a crime comic?" CGC notes, "Extra staple added, not from manufacturing." Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $177; VF 8.0 value = $369; VF/NM 9.0 value = $565; NM- 9.2 value = $760.
