    Candid Tales #nn Doctor Killmore Edition (Kirby Publishing, 1950) CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet calls this comic "scarce," and this is the first copy we've ever offered here at Heritage. This digest-size book has the work of Wally Wood and Bob Powell, and make no mistake about it: just about every page has women in various states of undress, leering double-entendres... or both! Note that this edition has a Wood story featuring a character named Doctor Killmore, as opposed to another version that has a Wood-drawn pirate yarn. That Doctor Killmore story, about buxom nurses and the doctors who chase them, is a must for any Wood collector! This is the only copy of the issue that CGC has assigned a blue-label Universal Grade to date. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $600. CGC census 12/05: 1 in 8.0, none higher.
