    Description

    Gay Comics #1 Mile High Pedigree (Timely, 1944) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. The highest-graded copy of this Timely that CGC has certified to date, and quite possibly the highest they will ever grade! This first issue had three characters who starred in their own titles at one time: Powerhouse Pepper (drawn by Basil Wolverton), Tessie the Typist, and Willie -- the first appearance anywhere of the latter, who had his own series for a few years. The issue is rated "scarce" by Gerber. This is the first opportunity that we have had to offer the Mile High copy, and we have not seen any high grade copy for more than a dozen years! Overstreet 2018 NM- 9.2 value = $1,250. CGC census 11/18: 1 in 9.8, none higher.
