    New Comics #1 (DC, 1935) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. DC's second comic book title evolved first into New Adventure Comics in 1937, then to Adventure Comics in 1938. The initial cover art is by Vincent Sullivan, better known for his cover on Detective Comics #1. Besides its chronologically historical significance, two eventual DC editors, Whitney Ellsworth and Sheldon Mayer cut their artistic teeth here, and this issue also featured work by Walt Kelly. Gerber lists this issue as "scarce," and CGC has graded only one other of the issue in better condition than this. A Shirley Temple doll is advertised on the back cover. Overstreet 2002 FN 6.0 value = $8,550; VF 8.0 value = $18,500.
