    Mister Mystery #2 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (MR Publications, 1951) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. What's harder to find in grade than a black cover? How about a black paper cover like this one? The cover with an "Alien"-like creature is the work of none other than Ross Andru and Mike Esposito, the artists who were also the publishers of this series (MR = Mike and Ross). Inside this pre-Code book, the tales introduced by the top-hatted Mister Mystery include one drawn by Jack Abel and another by an unknown artist doing a shameless Harvey Kurtzman imitation! Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $810. CGC census 9/06: 2 in 9.4, none higher. From the Crippen Collection.
