    Blue Bolt #111 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (Star Publications, 1951) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Cream to off-white pages. While L. B. Cole was a master of suspense, he could also do out-and-out terror -- see this skull cover if you don't believe us! Cole added a page of interior art as well. While superhero Blue Bolt was quite often a no-show on this title's covers, after this issue he would be permanently absent -- it's got the last new Blue Bolt story of the series' run. As this is currently the sole highest-graded copy of a black-cover issue, we can't imagine any pre-Code horror fan who wouldn't want it! Overstreet 2006 VF/NM 9.0 value = $430; NM- 9.2 value = $585. CGC census 7/06: 1 in 9.0, none higher. From the Crippen Collection.
