    Description

    Hangman Comics #8 (MLJ, 1943) Condition: FR. This is the #1 rarest MLJ comic issue in our opinion. Mothers were quick to toss this comic in the trash for a few reasons -- first, a hangman is the hero, then there's the gallows, and a man being stabbed on the cover, which bears the threat "Nazis and Japs, you rats! Beware! The Hangman is everywhere!" This is just the second copy that Heritage has ever offered. The formidable cover art is by Bob Fujitani. This issue was also the last of the title, before the name change to Black Hood -- we suspect that the Hangman was not a huge newsstand success. The cover of this copy is is detached. Overstreet 2016 GD 2.0 value = $187. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection.
