    Description

    More Fun Comics #101 Double Cover (DC, 1945) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. The first appearance of Superboy makes this a DC key by any measure, and this rare double-covered copy is something special indeed! Even more so, as most of the story revealed new details of Superboy's origin (and therefore Superman's as well). Making his final appearance in this title was the Spectre, after being the star of the book for nearly 50 issues. He's drawn by Bernard Baily. Green Arrow, Johnny Quick (with Mort Meskin art), and Aquaman also appear. It's interesting to note that Superboy didn't get a cover mention, while the comic relief duo Dover and Clover are billed on the cover but don't appear inside! That leads us to speculate that the Superboy feature was a last-minute addition here, most likely originally planned for another title. One mystery about this key issue is who drew the all-important Superboy story, which has never been conclusively attributed. The cover, featuring Green Arrow, is by Cliff Young. CGC notes, "First cover 9.2, interior cover 9.6." Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $16,500. CGC census 7/10: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
