    Circus the Comic Riot #2 (Globe Syndicate, 1938) CGC FN 6.0 Off-white pages. The word "rare" gets thrown around a lot, but this has an excellent claim to the term. It's one of only two copies CGC has certified (the other being a VG 4.0) and the first copy Heritage has ever offered (despite offering #1 fairly frequently). In addition, lists no previous sale for the issue. Perhaps the most intriguing thing about the series is the creators involved: it's got early work by Will Eisner (two years before the first Spirit section), Jack Cole (three years before Plastic Man appeared), Bob Kane (almost a year before Detective #27), and Basil Wolverton. Overstreet 2011 FN 6.0 value = $840. CGC census 4/12: 1 in 6.0, none higher.
