    Comedy Comics #9 (Timely, 1942) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. Here's the finest known copy of the first issue of this Timely funny book title (co-starring the superheroes from Daring Mystery). Overstreet notes it as a "scarce" issue. Nearly 20 years before he became known as the JLA artist, Mike Sekowsky provided the cover art here, with help from George Klein. Bill Everett and Basil Wolverton interior art make this a gem of a Golden Age issue, featuring the first appearance of the Comedy Kid, and also featuring the Fin, Citizen V, Silver Scorpion, and Captain Dash. Overstreet 2007 VF 8.0 value = $1,900; VF/NM 9.0 value = $3,075. CGC census 5/07: 1 in 8.5, none higher.
