    Description

    Planet Comics #2 (Fiction House, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Cream to off-white pages. If this cover doesn't get your attention, you must see in shades of gray! The Lou Fine art is compelling enough, but the unusually brilliant and varied colors must have made the second issue of Fiction House's groundbreaking science fiction title stand out among the other Golden Age titles. Harder to find than the first issue; Overstreet and Gerber rate this "scarce." And, sure enough, CGC has certified only three other copies of issue #2 with higher grades than this. Add the collector allure of this beauty, and the result is a book that typically fetches higher-than-Overstreet values. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $1,269; VF 8.0 value = $2,936. CGC census 4/05: 1 in 6.5, 3 higher.
