    Comedy Comics #9 (Timely, 1942) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages. Here's the only copy graded above 8.5 of this superhero Timely. That's right, we said superhero -- despite the wacky cover, half the issue is filled with Daring Mystery heroes (see the lots right after this one) who stuck around after the title changed to Comedy. The Fin (by Bill Everett) and Citizen V are two of the heroes seen inside. Another selling point: as Gary Carter once noted, upon closer inspection, the cover is "filled with sadistic acts of violence disguised as 'comedy.'" Incidentally, some have credited the cover art to none other than future DC standby Mike Sekowsky. The issue is called "scarce" by both Overstreet and Gerber, and we agree that it's a tough book, as we had only auctioned four copies ever. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $4,800. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 9.4, none higher. From the Chicorel Collection.
