    Pep Comics #40 (MLJ, 1943) CBCS VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. A book we rarely see (we've seen two in the past 12 years), this book was early enough in Archie Andrews' career that he wasn't even getting a cover blurb yet, but the Japanese War/bondage cover by Bob Montana, starring the Shield, was still a strong newsstand eye-grabber. Inside there's a Shield text story, and art by Irv Novick, Gil Kane, and Bob Fujitani. Overstreet 2018 VF 8.0 value = $1,613.
