    Green Hornet Comics #1 (Holyoke, 1940) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. This is a tough book to get hold of -- we had only auctioned three different copies since 2001. Also, only the Mile High copy at 9.2 has been graded higher! This is the first comic book appearance of the Green Hornet and Kato, who had been stars of a popular radio show for several years and had spawned comic book imitators such as DC's Crimson Avenger (and -- one could argue -- the Sandman as well). We love the striking pulp-like cover by an unknown artist. Holyoke (aka Helnit) published the first few issues before the series was taken over by Harvey. Overstreet 2009 VF/NM 9.0 value = $6,440; NM- 9.2 value = $9,200. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 9.0, 1 higher. From the Chicorel Collection.
