    Description

    Mask Comics #1 (Rural Home, 1945) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white pages. This is one of the classic L.B. Cole covers of all time. A menacing devil holds a candle in front of his face with the word "evil" inscribed upon the base of the candlestick. A flock of vibrantly colored human butterflies flight around the borders of the cover. This is a prime example of Cole's use of simple and yet stunning colors to create most unique covers that just begged a browser to purchase the book. This scarce copy has awesome colors, and is the highest graded unrestored copy certified by CGC. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $1,705
