    Description

    Fight Comics #1 Mile High pedigree (Fiction House, 1940) CGC Apparent NM+ 9.6 Slight (P) Off-white to white pages. The origin of Spy Fighter and Jack Dempsey's life story stand out in this issue, this copy of which is a very impressive representative of the most revered of pedigrees, the Mile High collection. CGC cites Will Eisner as the cover artist while Overstreet says it's Lou Fine. We think it's a collaboration between the two. Eisner also contributed interior art, as did George Tuska. This is far and away the finest-looking copy known, with just "Slight" professional touch up. The highest Universal (blue label) grade CGC has awarded to date is VF 8.0, and the next highest Restored Grade was certified Apparent VF- 7.5. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: small amount of color touch on cover and spine." Overstreet 2008 GD 2.0 value = $333; VG 4.0 value = $666; FN 6.0 value = $1,000; VF 8.0 value = $2,165; VF/NM 9.0 value = $3,833; NM- 9.2 value = $5,500.
