    Sensation Mystery #114 River City pedigree (DC, 1953) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. This issue has a superb lineup of artists including Alex Toth, Manny Stallman, and Carmine Infantino. Those three each drew one story, then there's a fourth story which some sources credit to Mort Drucker, others to Gene Colan -- we'd say you can't go wrong with either of those two greats! The star character, seen in the Toth story and on the Gil Kane cover, is adventurer Johnny Peril of former Comic Cavalcade fame. Only one copy of this issue has been certified with a higher grade by CGC to date. Overstreet 2004 VF 8.0 value = $264. CGC census 12/04: 1 in 8.0, 1 higher.
