    Planet Comics #1 (Fiction House, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages. The first issue of Fiction House's very popular sci-fi series. We have only seen two copies with a higher grade in the past five years. This key issue is notable for its fantastic Will Eisner and Lou Fine cover. The Origin of Auro, Lord of Jupiter, is included, as well as other tales featuring Flint Baker, Spurt Hammond, Buzz Crandall, and the Red Comet. Dick Briefer and Alex Blum art. Planet Comics is, perhaps, Fiction House's most sought-after title, featuring a plethora of exciting covers, and it was the longest running Golden Age title of its genre. A superb example of the first issue. Overstreet 2017 VF 8.0 value = $9,500. CGC census 11/17: 3 in 8.0, 7 higher.
