    Marvel Mystery Comics #7 (Timely, 1940) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. One of Alex Schomburg's earlier Timely covers not only has nice views of all the top characters plus plenty of action, too, it's got the "bondage" and "hypodermic needle" elements that raised the eyebrows of librarians and other guardians of America's youth. This issue came early in the Timely scheme of things -- Marvel Mystery was still one of just three titles published by the firm (the others, Daring Mystery and Mystic, are both well-represented in the Chicorel Collection). It would be a shame if the ultra-key issues on the preceding and succeeding pages caused you to overlook this winner! Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $6,199; VF/NM 9.0 value = $10,850. CGC census 4/09: 3 in 8.5, 2 higher. From the Chicorel Collection.
