    New Comics #4 (DC, 1936) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. We were wowed by the sight of a Platinum Age book in CGC 9.2 condition! It certainly beats the pants off of the second highest-graded copy in CGC's census, which checks in at 5.5. Overstreet was so pessimistic about the possibility of a high-grade copy that the Guide doesn't list a value above VF. As for the book itself (a Gerber "7" by the way), it offered 84 pages of entertainment for a dime, with a mix of adventure yarns and gag features. The cover is by Vincent Sullivan; highlights include a Federal Men story by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (who would go on to create Superman), several features drawn by Sheldon Mayer, and a partial adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $5,000 (highest value listed by Overstreet). CGC census 1/05: 1 in 9.2, none higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
