    Mystic Comics #5 (Timely, 1941) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. Alex Schomburg's cover art depicts the Black Marvel interrupting a group of (presumably) German agents attempting to sabotage a U.S. munitions factory. Overstreet notes this as being the first in a run of German war-themed covers for the series. This issue has the origin of the Black Marvel, the Blazing Skull, the Sub-Earth Man, Super Slave, and the Terror. The Moon Man and Black Widow also appear. This sensational copy shows some very minor spine wear, and otherwise appears almost flawless. There is currently only one copy of this issue that has been graded higher by CGC. Overstreet 2015 VF 8.0 value = $2,877; VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,039. CGC census 11/15: 3 in 8.5, 1 higher.
