    Description

    It Rhymes With Lust #nn (St. John, 1950) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. This "picture novel" has been called comics' first graphic novel. The black-and-white digest-sized publication has 128 pages, 126 of which have art by Matt Baker. It also has the distinction of being the first comic book work by writer Arnold Drake of Deadman fame. This copy is one of only three that we've ever seen. The combination of Baker's popularity and the item's scarcity suggests its value is on a rapid rise -- in fact, an 8.0 copy sold for more than $6,000 in February. Overstreet 2011 VG 4.0 value = $258; FN 6.0 value = $387. CGC census 8/11: 2 in 5.0, 3 higher.
