    Description

    Planet Comics #52 Rockford pedigree (Fiction House, 1948) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. Joe Doolin's reign as the cover master for Fiction House's premier title for the period 1943-49 produced some of the most memorable covers in all of comics. And he was always backed by terrific interior artists, such as George Evans and Maurice Whitman (his eventual heir apparent as Fiction House's primary cover artist) in this issue. The Rockford copy barely misses being the highest-graded copy to be certified by CGC to date (9.4 to 9.2). Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $800. CGC census 7/05: 2 in 9.2, 1 higher.
