    Description

    Is This Tomorrow #nn Black and White Confidential Advance Variant (Catechetical Guild, 1947) CGC Apparent FN 6.0 Slight (A) White pages. A rare variant, one of only four copies certified by CGC to date. It has slightly different content than the regular edition of the widely distributed anti-communist comic (and we do mean "widely distributed" -- some four million copies of the color edition were printed). Overstreet says "Contains script and art edited out of the color edition, including one page of extreme violence showing [a] mob nailing a Cardinal to a door." The message printed on the cover even states that the comic "contains a number of errors that we are now correcting." The cover message goes on to solicit suggestions regarding distribution as well as how to improve the content. And the back cover message is also tantalizing: it asks for ideas on what might be included in a planned future promotional comic with the working title This Is The Answer, which would have elaborated on the alternative to communism. This is one of only three copies we've encountered, and the first we've seen in more than 10 years. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: small amount of color touch on cover. (Tape on interior of cover.)" Overstreet doesn't list values for this version, but does note that "A VF+ sold in 2/08 for $3,346. A NM+ 9.6 sold in 1/07 for $5,975."
