    Description

    Mystery in Space #1 (DC, 1951) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. DC's second science fiction title debuted in 1951 with an impressive lineup of contributing artists, most of which would contribute to the long-running title for another decade. Carmine Infantino might be remembered more for his work on Flash and on the Adam Strange feature in this title years later, but his cover here ranks with his best efforts. Infantino gets sterling support from Frank Frazetta, Alex Toth, Virgil Finlay, and Howard Purcell on interior art. Our offering comes close to the highest-graded copy (at 9.0) that CGC has certified to date. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $2,004; VF/NM 9.0 value = $3,402. CGC census 3/05: 5 in 8.5, 1 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
