    Keen Detective Funnies #8 (Centaur, 1938) CGC FN+ 6.5 Cream to off-white pages. The index may say #8, but this was actually the first issue of the title, which had supposedly morphed from Detective Picture Stories. Like virtually all of the pre-1940 Centaurs, this one's tough to find, and boasts a Gerber "7" or "scarce" in The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books' scarcity index. That rating may be conservative, because this is the one and only copy to be certified by CGC to date, and we've never offered a copy in any grade before. The Clock is the headline story. Overstreet 2007 FN 6.0 value = $717; VF 8.0 value = $1,494. CGC census 1/08: 1 in 6.5, none higher.
