    Description

    Marvel Mystery Comics #7 File Copy (Timely, 1940) CGC Qualified VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. Publisher Martin Goodman believed in trying out lots of characters to see which ones caught on. This early Timely book has some that were still going strong 50 years later (Sub-Mariner and Ka-Zar) a couple that were enduring names if not characters (Human Torch, Angel, Electro), and a few who never made it big (like the Ferret). This copy bears the stamp of "Funnies Inc.," the shop that created most of the heroes mentioned above, and whose members Bill Everett, Carl Burgos, Paul Gustavson, and Irwin Hasen all contributed art to this issue. The cover is another great danger scene by Alex Schomburg. CGC notes, "Glue on spine, 12 tiny holes through cover and pages, from a bound volume." Overstreet 2004 GD 2.0 value = $690; VG 4.0 value = $1,380; FN 6.0 value = $2,070.
