    Planet Comics #23 (Fiction House, 1943). As one of the more prolific publishing houses of the Golden Age, Fiction House left no genre unturned, and their long-running Planet Comics boasted colorful space opera on a monthly basis. This issue, which sports a wonderfully lurid cover of a beauteous babe being menaced by a horned lizard-creature, features outstanding interior artwork by Lee Elias, Art Saaf, and George Tuska. A beautiful high-grade copy with excellent color, sharp corners, and virtually no spine stress, this is a very solid book. Fiction House comics tend to be undervalued in the marketplace, making this book even more attractive. CGC notes, "'8' written on the first page in pencil." CGC VF 8.0 Light tan to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $379; NM 9.4 value = $1,200.
