    Mystery in Space #1 (DC, 1951) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. DC's second space adventure title, gives a nod to the style of Planet Comics, the granddaddy of the genre, with a terrific outer space backdrop on the Carmine Infantino cover fronted by an alluring space girl with a... good front. Frank Frazetta contributes eight pages of interior art assuring the title would be in high demand by collectors decades hence. At this writing, just one other copy has been awarded a higher grade by CGC and that was by only a half-grade. With all the black of space on the cover, this is a very difficult book to locate in anything near this grade. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $1,853; NM 9.4 value = $3,700.
