    Description

    New Comics #1 (DC, 1935) CGC Qualified FR/GD 1.5 Cream to off-white pages. Offered here is an exceedingly rare comic, which almost never surfaces for sale. It is an especially noteworthy book, since this title eventually becomes the hugely popular Adventure Comics. This copy is qualified because the staples have been replaced, and CGC also notes that there is a moderate amount of small pieces of tape on the cover and interior. This book also contains the first artwork by three of the greats: Walt Kelly, Vincent Sullivan, and Sheldon Mayer. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $2,850.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
