    New Fun Comics #1 (DC, 1935) Condition: GD. One of the most historically important comic books ever published, New Fun #1 is the genesis of DC. Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, DC's creator, hit upon the novel idea of filling his first book with all new material, as opposed to the strip reprints other publishers were using for their comics. This idea would take years to catch on with everyone else, resulting in a pool of talent, including Bob Kane, Jerry Siegel, and Joe Shuster, drifting toward DC's doors. The concept paid off in spades. An incredibly interesting book by itself, New Fun #1 is oversized, measuring 10" x 15", and is very rare. Almost all copies are either restored, or beat up with low page quality. This particular one is something to behold, exhibiting no restoration, and off-white to white pages. The spine is cleanly split, but the cover has no missing pieces, and exhibits average wear usually found on VG to FN copies. A three-inch tear extending from the middle spine on the back cover, and a small stain on the back and front, are the only other defects worth noting. The interior is in remarkable shape, with little wear and superb page quality. Despite the defects, it's safe to say this book ranks among the best existing unrestored copies. Overstreet 2005 GD 2.0 value = $6,650. From the Northern Lights Collection.
