    Description

    Planet Comics #1 Rockford pedigree (Fiction House, 1940) CGC VF- 7.5 Cream to off-white pages. The genius talents of Will Eisner and Lou Fine deliver this enthralling and action-packed first issue cover. Note the tremendous detail in the ship's rivets and in the horde of one-eyed, green-skinned, purple-haired beasts. One wonders how our hero, Flint Baker, and heroine could really fit into those huge clear, single-piece space suits. Don't they need to flex their torsos? This first issue features the origin of Auro, Lord of Jupiter, and Flint Baker, and the Red Comet stories begin. Planet Comics is, perhaps, Fiction House's most sought-after title. This long running science-fiction title had a plethora of exciting covers such as this, and was the longest running Golden Age title of this genre. This Rockford pedigree copy has a clean cover, and deep rich hues. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $6,747.
