    Great Comics #3 Trimmed (Great Comics Publications, 1942) CGC Apparent FN 6.0 Off-white pages. This classic "Hitler-goes-to-Hell" cover is enough of a reason to place a bid, but this comic has long been a tough one to find. Overstreet considers it "scarce," while Gerber rated it as "uncommon." And for fans of old-time movie serials, an adaptation of 1935's The Lost City, featuring William "Stage" Boyd is included. This is a very nice looking book, and while CGC notes the the centerfold is detached, and that the right edge of the centerfold is trimmed, we feel that this was quite probably done long ago, as an afterthought, and not to improve the grade for resale. Neither the cover nor any other interior pages have been trimmed. Overstreet 2014 FN 6.0 value = $1,542. CGC census 8/14: 1 in 6.0, 5 higher. From the Prospect Mountain Collection.
