    Description

    New Comics #1 (DC, 1935) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. After the success of its inaugural title New Fun, DC decided to try their hand at another one nine months later, calling it New Comics. They felt this sounded a little too similar, and so New Fun became More Fun. New Comics would last as such until issue #11, when it also made a title change, adding the word "Adventure." Printed at the dawn of modern comics, all of these issues are quite rare, making this particular copy nothing short of remarkable. Due to flat paper stock used to print the cover, no gloss is ever present, and all copies have a dull appearance. But from a structural standpoint, little is wrong with this copy; tiny tears at the top staples, a small hole and stain on the back cover, and a tiny chip out of the top edge of the front cover are all that's visibly wrong. CGC notes a very minor amount of glue on the cover. Overstreet 2002 FN 6.0 value = $8,550; VF 8.0 value = $18,500.
