    Description

    Planet Comics #60 (Fiction House, 1949). While the bug-eyed monster is almost completely off-panel, you have to love the way artist John Doolin renders the lovely, knife-wielding heroine on this seafaring cover of the 60th issue of Fiction House's long-running "sci-fi" comic. Interior artwork is by the likes of Leonard Starr, Frank Fermonetti, and EC mainstay Graham Ingels, who illustrates an "Auro, Lord of Jupiter" story. A very solid copy, this shows light spine stress and minor dust shadowing, which doesn't detract from the gorgeous colors and fresh appearance of the book. Like most Fiction House books, this is undervalued, allowing shrewd collectors a great opportunity to pick up high-grade copies before the market catches up. CGC VF- 7.5 Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $182; NM 9.4 value = $575.
