    New Book of Comics #1 (DC, 1937) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. This is the first regular-sized comic annual, and the second DC annual. It contains reprints from New Comics #1-4 and More Fun #9, with art by Joe Shuster, Shelly Moldoff, and Sheldon Mayer. Gerber describes this comic as "rare," and estimates that only 11 to 20 copies still exist. Overstreet also calls this book "rare," and does not even supply values for grades over Very Fine. The current CGC census shows five certified copies, with only one copy grading higher than this one - at a surprising NM 9.4 (someone tell Overstreet!). In any case, this is a top copy of an important comic. Overstreet 2004 VF 8.0 value = $13,000.
