    Detective Comics #14 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent VF 8.0 Moderate (P) Off-white pages. This is only the second time we've gotten our hands on a copy of this hard-to-find issue, a Gerber "7." In this pre-superhero issue, top billing went to detective Speed Saunders, seen both on this bondage cover and inside the issue, with Creig Flessel art in each case. And though Action Comics #1 was still a few months away, writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster were kept quite busy, namely by producing both the Spy and Slam Bradley stories for this issue. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cover cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2005 GD 2.0 value = $525; VG 4.0 value = $1,050; FN 6.0 value = $1,575; VF 8.0 value = $2,625.
