    Description

    Four Color #496 The Green Hornet (Dell, 1953) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. "One of the scarcest Dell issues of the 1950's... it's almost impossible to locate in high grade and it's no cinch to find in any condition" was Michelle Nolan's comment on this issue, the character's only Dell appearance. This oddity came out at a time when very few superheroes were appearing in comics. Look who contributed art: it's Frank Thorne, who's still drawing for Playboy in the present day. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $475. CGC census 10/10: 1 in 9.4, 1 higher. From the George Simpson Collection.
