    Real Life Comics #3 (Nedor Publications, 1942) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. Better/Nedor's foray into the non-fiction genre never gets the attention it deserves, but if one issue presents a good argument for recognition, it's this outrageous issue from 1941. The "Emperor of Hate" is emblazoned in blood below the title, just above a cover-dominating drawing of Hitler, who holds a skull in one hand, a smoking gun in the other, and stands Colossus-like over a globe wracked by war. Alex Schomburg's moving cover includes scenes from concentration camps, panzers ravaging the countryside, and Nazi soldiers killing civilians. A ten-page biography of Der Fuehrer is inside. And, this was on the newsstands just as Pearl Harbor was attacked, right before the U.S.A. entered WWII. Collectors who know of this issue know how difficult it is to find and this copy is just the third that we have ever seen -- it's also the highest in grade of the three! In fact, this copy currently tops CGC's census! This issue is destined for continued demand and increasing value, so bid accordingly. Overstreet 2013 VF/NM 9.0 value = $2,826; NM- 9.2 value = $4,000. CGC census 5/14: 2 in 9.0, none higher.
