    Terry-Toons Comics #1 (Timely, 1942) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. The highest-graded copy of a Timely #1? That should mean feverish collector interest in this issue, and our offering here is the only copy we've ever seen... we don't feel so bad since it's rated "scarce" by both Gerber and Overstreet! The funny cover has been attributed to Mike Sekowsky. We don't know what's more bizarre, a "funny animal war" cover or the fact that Gandy Goose is reading Dale Carnegie's How To Win Friends And Influence People! Gandy is joined by Sergeant Sourpuss - both characters appeared in the movies before Timely publisher Martin Goodman cleverly licensed them for the comics. Overstreet 2006 FN 6.0 value = $510; VF 8.0 value = $1,063. CGC census 5/06: 1 in 7.0, none higher.
