    Daring Mystery Comics #1 Denver pedigree Timely, 1940) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. This milestone Timely hit the newsstands just three months after Marvel Comics #1, and well before first issues of better-known titles such as Human Torch Comics and Sub-Mariner Comics. The cover is quintessential Alex Schomburg -- bondage, hooded bad guys, and action galore. The futuristic theme featured the Fiery Mask, a character whose origin and first appearance could be found inside. This brilliant Denver pedigree copy could have come from the "other" premier pedigree from Colorado -- it is magnificent! The issue itself is Gerber "scarce", underscored by the total number of unrestored copies CGC has certified to date, a mere five. And, no other copy has been graded nicer than FN 6.0! Joe Simon contributed interior art. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $33,000. CGC census 03/06: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
