    Pep Comics #23 (MLJ, 1942) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white pages. Featuring the second appearance of that singular teen, Archie Andrews, this issue is even more rare than Pep Comics #22; in fact, this is only the fifth copy we've ever seen. The classic Nazi/Statue of Liberty cover is by Irv Novick, while the Archie story features art by Bob Montana. This is one of the nicest copies we've seen, and to date CGC has certified only three others with higher grades. CGC notes, "Very minor amount of glue on cover." Overstreet 2018 FN 6.0 value = $6,825; VF 8.0 value = $13,650. CGC census 11/18: 1 in 6.5, 3 higher.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 1298480006 and purchase grader's notes if available.
