    Future Comics #1-4 Group (David McKay Publications, 1940). The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books rates all four issues of the series as "uncommon," but based on the number of copies we've seen over the years, the issues may approach "scarce" status. One thing's certain -- you won't often have a chance to get the entire series at the same time, and you may never find a nicer copy of the first issue, a milestone book that featured for the first time in comics the origin of the Phantom. Other features were The Lone Ranger and Saturn Against the Earth. The condition of each copy: #1 (VF), 2 (GD/VG, with 5" spine split), 3 (GD/VG, with 2.5" spine split), and 4 (VG/FN, with rusty staples). Approximate Overstreet value for group = $2,325.
