    Description

    Real Life Comics #3 (Nedor Publications, 1942) CGC FN- 5.5 Off-white pages. Just the third graded copy that we have ever offered of this issue featuring an Overstreet-designated "classic" cover by Golden Age cover artist extraordinaire, Alex Schomburg. This Better/Nedor foray into the non-fiction genre doesn't get enough attention, but if one issue presents an argument to recognize the title, it's this outrageous issue from 1941. The "Emperor of Hate" is emblazoned in blood below the title, just above a cover-dominating drawing of Hitler, who holds a skull in one hand, a smoking gun in the other, and stands Colossus-like over a globe wracked by war. A Hitler story inside corresponds to the cover image. Other stories inside the issue feature Ferdinand Magellan, Andrew Jackson, Charles Dickens, and the Alamo. Overstreet 2017 FN 6.0 value = $1,785. CGC census 8/17: 3 in 5.5, 11 higher.
