    Marvel Mystery Comics #8 Recil Macon pedigree (Timely, 1940) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white pages. The eye appeal of this copy is much stronger than the 7.5 grade would indicate -- see for yourself! We think this looks nicer than the higher-graded Lamont Larson copy we auctioned previously. This is certainly a significant issue since it has the first superhero crossover battle in comics, that being the Human Torch versus Sub-Mariner fight that raged through issues #9 and #10 as well. Cover art by Alex Schomburg and Bill Everett. The Recil Macon pedigree is not as well-known as some (and CGC had only certified a total of 23 Recil Macon copies last we heard) but the quality of this copy should make more collectors sit up and take notice. Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $8,500. CGC census 6/09: 2 in 7.5, 5 higher.
