    Punch Comics #12 Crowley pedigree (Chesler, 1945). This is it, one of the most gruesome skull covers from the Golden Age of comics! This classic cover has a black background, making it very difficult to find in high grade. A stunning example, it is the highest CGC graded copy to date. One of the best covers in the run, this issue of Punch also boasts the highest value. Over the years, Chesler covers began to take on a strange, twisted form, mixing crime with horror, and as a result have proven popular with collectors today. CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $570; NM 9.4 value = $1,800.
