    Mask Comics #1 (Rural Home, 1945). This highly desirable book features a classic L.B. Cole cover. Covers by Cole are a well-established area of collecting, and are highly prized for his unique and colorful style. Having changed hands many times over the years, these books are fairly rare in the higher grades. Offered here is a very attractive copy with good color saturation and very few defects that distract from the overall appeal. The initials "SN" are written on the cover in pencil, which identifies the book as being from the "Tennessee" collection. While not a sought after "pedigree", it is a well respected provenance among seasoned collectors. CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $790; NM 9.4 value = $2,500.
