    New Book of Comics #1 (DC, 1937) CGC GD/VG 3.0 Off-white to white pages. This book is considered to be the first regular-size comic book annual ever, and also only DC's second annual ever! A great pool of talent was utilized on this issue which features a Jerry Siegel story and art by Sheldon Mayer, Joe Shuster, Vincent Sullivan, and Sheldon Moldoff. Gerber describes this comic as "rare," and Overstreet doesn't even supply values for grades over Very Fine. It is listed as one of the 40 most valuable Golden Age comics by Overstreet and deserves a spot in any serious Golden Age collection. Overstreet 2012 GD 2.0 value = $1,850; VG 4.0 value = $3,700. CGC census 7/12: 1 in 3.0, 7 higher.
