    Description

    Planet Comics #53 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (Fiction House, 1948) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. Covers with upside-down women were something of a Fiction House specialty. Take this cover by Dan Zolnerowich, which shows nothing it shouldn't and everything it should! Bondage cover collectors should note that no less than four leggy lovelies are trussed up (with just one rough-and-ready hero to rescue 'em). It was enough to prompt Fredric Wertham to pluck this one off the rack -- the issue got a mention in Seduction of the Innocent. The impressive lineup of interior artists includes Matt Baker, George Evans, and Joe Doolin. Note that a small plastic stabilizing peg is loose inside the CGC holder, not affecting the comic or the integrity of the holder. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $388; VF/NM 9.0 value = $612. CGC census 9/06: 4 in 8.5, 3 higher. From the Crippen Collection.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
