    Famous Funnies #72 Mile High pedigree (Eastern Color, 1940) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. This is the highest CGC-graded copy of this book, and will probably never be improved upon. Edgar Church carefully selected each comic to add to his historic collection as this example clearly shows. As expected, it has a tight spine and flat, clean surface. This issue features the first appearance of Speed Spaulding which was written by Edwin Balmer and noted author, Philip Wylie, and was the inspiration for the film "When Worlds Collide." Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $170.
