    Circus the Comic Riot #1 (Globe Syndicate, 1938) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. This comic features very early work by all-time greats Basil Wolverton, Will Eisner, and Bob Kane, and is also notable for including Jack Cole's second published comic book story. This particular copy is stunning, a tremendous example of an important book from the dawn of the Golden Age. Gerber and Overstreet both consider this comic "scarce," and only one copy of this issue has been graded higher by CGC to date. CGC notes, "Siamese pages neatly cut apart, one still attached." Overstreet 2004 VF 8.0 value = $4,800; VF/NM 9.0 value = $6,600.
