    Description

    Real Fact Comics #6 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1947) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. Believe it or not, this collection of (mostly) nonfiction stories features the first appearance of Tommy Tomorrow! Tommy is used here as a nondescript Everyman of the future, but in time he became a science fiction adventurer in the back pages of Action Comics as well as his own issues of Showcase. Interestingly, the letters page has the first published words of Harlan Ellison (who was still in his early teens at the time). There's also art in the issue by ace pulp illustrator Virgil Finlay. The flag cover is also worthy of mention, since the flag in question is being planted on Mars! Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $1,475. CGC census 2/05: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
