    Description

    Contact Comics #12 (Aviation Press, 1946) CGC FN+ 6.5 Cream to off-white pages. L. B. Cole is known for creating comic covers with a deceptively simple yet distinctive poster-like style. This issue is highly sought after as one of the comics pictured on the cover to The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books, and as one of only four science-fiction-themed 1940s covers by Cole. Like most of Cole's pre-1947 work, this is a very tough issue to find, especially with fresh cover colors like this one, that do justice to his artistry. This tightly-graded FN+ has minor wear that in no way distracts from the viewer's appreciation of the cover. Overstreet 2002 FN 6.0 value = $219.
