    Strange Adventures #5 (DC, 1951) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Cream to off-white pages. The first few covers of DC's first science-fiction title are arguably the best in the long series. Unfortunately, we cannot identify this cover's artist for sure, but whenever no one else will venture an opinion, we can go to where The Grand Comics Database Project will usually opine. As to this cover, the guess is Bob Oksner. At this grade, only the slightest of defects are allowed, so rest assured this is one near-perfect copy, currently ranked the second nicest issue #5 that CGC has graded. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $1,205.
