    Description

    Daring Mystery Comics #1 (Timely, 1940) CGC FN 6.0 Off-white pages. Believe it: this book leads off an original-owner run of Daring Mystery #1-7!

    This issue is the third comic book Timely ever published (tied with Marvel Mystery #3, also offered in this auction, as are Timely's first two efforts)! It also has the first Timely art by two all-time greats, cover artist Alex Schomburg (whose cover for the aforementioned MM #3 appeared at the same time) and Joe Simon, who drew the Human Torch-like Fiery Mask.

    Just one unrestored copy has been graded higher to date (the 9.4 Denver copy), so this lot represents an opportunity to secure one of the best copies of one of the top 50 Golden Age books. Overstreet 2009 FN 6.0 value = $5,700. CGC census 4/09: 3 in 6.0, 1 higher. From the Chicorel Collection.
