    More Fun Comics #16 (DC, 1936) CGC VG- 3.5 Light tan to off-white pages. More renowned for drawing the classic cover for Detective Comics #1 a few months later, Vincent Sullivan was responsible for this Christmas cover and many other early covers of DC's earliest series. Considering this heirloom was published over 65 years ago, the deep, rich cover colors are breathtaking, belying the technical grade from CGC, owing to overall wear, mostly around the edges. Gerber rates issue #16 as "scarce", and CGC has certified just four unrestored copies to date, only one of which managed a grade higher than VG 4.0. Classic Golden Age artists contributing include Creig Flessel, Joe Shuster (on Superman prototype, Dr. Occult), and Leo O'Mealia. These pre-superhero (Dr. Occult notwithstanding) issues are real value bargains. Overstreet 2003 VG 4.0 value = $1476.
