    Description

    Is This Tomorrow - Black and White "Confidential Advance" Variant (Catechetical Guild, 1947) CGC Apparent VF+ 8.5 Slight (A) White pages. "Only two known copies," says Overstreet. And the CGC census only lists two as well. This has somewhat different content than the regular edition of the widely distributed anti-communist comic (and we do mean "widely distributed" -- some four million copies of the color edition were printed). Overstreet says "Contains script and art edited out of the color edition, including one page of extreme violence showing [a] mob nailing a Cardinal to a door... the two black and white copies listed... surfaced in 1979 from the [Catechetical] Guild's old files in St. Paul, Minnesota." The message printed on the cover even states that the comic "contains a number of errors that we are now correcting." The cover message goes on to solicit suggestions regarding distribution as well as how to improve the content. And the back cover message is also tantalizing: it asks for ideas on what might be included in a planned future promotional comic with the working title This Is The Answer, which would have elaborated on the alternative to communism. CGC notes, "Very small amount of color touch on cover. Very small amount of glue on cover." Overstreet 2007 GD 2.0 value = $107; VG 4.0 value = $214; FN 6.0 value = $321; VF 8.0 value = $669; VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,085. From the Robert M. Overstreet Collection.
