    Marvel Mystery Comics #7 Larson pedigree (Timely, 1940) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. With each issue he did for Marvel Mystery Comics, Alex Schomburg seemed to be getting more and more into his cover artist spotlight role by adding more elements, more action, more fear, and... more terror. He adds the dreaded "hypo" and bondage element to this Human Torch cover to captivating and brilliant effect. Inside, there are stories featuring the daring and courageous exploits of Ka-Zar, The Angel, the Sub-Mariner, Electro, and... The Ferret? The first ten issues of Marvel Mystery remain some of the most desirable, because of both their coolness factor and their rarity. This copy hails from the famous Lamont Larson collection, known for its depth of titles and issues, and superb page quality. The book is beautiful, exhibiting a tight spine, crisp edges, sharp corners, Larson's name in pencil and light foxing (commonly found on comics from this pedigree). According to CGC's most recent census, no book has graded higher. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $8,500.
