    Pep Comics #23 (MLJ, 1942) CGC VG/FN 5.0 White pages. Much more rare than Pep Comics #22, this is just the third copy that we've ever offered of issue #23, featuring the second appearance of Archie Andrews and the gang from Riverdale. And since Archie and the gang were much younger in that first appearance, this is the first time they appear at the age we all know and love them to be. This issue also features a classic Nazi/Statue of Liberty cover by none other than Irv Novick. Bob Montana art on the Archie story inside. Note the bone white pages on this attractive copy, the only 5.0 in the census with just four copies graded higher. CGC notes, "Tape on interior cover." Overstreet 2017 VG 4.0 value = $4,000; FN 6.0 value = $6,000. CGC census 11/17: 1 in 5.0, 4 higher.
