    Red Dragon Comics #5 (Street & Smith, 1943) CGC NM- 9.2 Cream to off-white pages. This is the only copy graded above VG/FN 5.0 by CGC. We had only ever seen one copy before, and never one in high-grade. This is actually the first issue, and we can see why Michelle Nolan wrote, "I consider the first series of Red Dragon Comics to be Street & Smith's most collectible title." The cover characters are, from left to right: Rex King, Captain Jack Commando (CJC), and Red Rover. We believe this to be the first appearance of the latter two. Jack Binder is the cover artist. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $1,450. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 9.2, none higher. From the Chicorel Collection.
