    Daring Mystery Comics #1 (Timely, 1940) CGC FN 6.0 Off-white pages. This very early Timely title hit the newsstands just three months after Marvel Comics #1. Featuring an Alex Schomburg cover that must have turned heads in 1940, this issue featured the origin and first appearances of the Fiery Mask, shown here trying to impress a bondaged miss, and wondering if his new uniform is color-coordinated. Gerber says it's a "scarce" issue, and CGC has seen only one other copy worthy of a higher grade. The "Very minor amount of glue on cover" noted by CGC was too insignificant to warrant anything but the CGC Universal Grade encasement. Grab a slice of historical Timely gold with this great book. Overstreet 2002 FN 6.0 value = $5,355.
