    Cocomalt Big Book of Comics #1 (Chesler, 1938) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. This promotional comic received a scarcity rating of "8" in Gerber's Photo-Journal. The comic certainly offered an eclectic mix: radio comedian Joe Penner (whose big catchphrase was "Wanna buy a duck?") shares the cover with six (not seven) dwarves, and inside there's everything from Little Nemo by Winsor McCay to the science fiction hero Dan Hastings (drawn by Fred Guardineer). There's also Jack Cole art in these pages. The cover is by Charles Biro. A glance at the back cover tells you how old this comic is -- it shows Frank Leahy before he became coach at Notre Dame and Hall of Famer Alex Wojciechowicz before he even started playing pro football! The highest grade CGC has assigned for this issue is a 7.5. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $645; VF 8.0 value = $1,344. CGC census 4/05: 1 in 7.0, 1 higher.
