    Description

    Jumbo Comics #1 (Fiction House, 1938) Condition: VG+. Considered one of Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics, this is the first published comic book art by Jack Kirby and also the very first comic published by Fiction House. Bob Kane and Will Eisner contributed to the issue as well. It's called "rare" by Overstreet and Gerber gives it an 8 out of 10 on its scarcity scale. The book also happens to have the first appearance of the publisher's most prominent character, Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. This book is quite literally jumbo, measuring 10.5" x 14.5". Given the large format, it's remarkable that copies have survived in any grade. Overstreet 2015 VG 4.0 value = $6,500.
