    Science Comics #1 Billy Wright pedigree (Fox, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. The only copy graded above 7.0 by CGC to date. As such, this could be as exciting to the Fox fan as some of the Timelys and DCs in the collection are to those firms' adherents! The cover art rather than the characters is the most notable aspect of this one. "Sex and sadism and a superhero, rendered by the redoubtable Lou Fine," was how Comic Book Marketplace characterized the cover. We will note that the cover character, called Electro here, became Dynamo starting with the next issue, perhaps owing to the Electro who's in Marvel Mystery #4 (a book included in this same collection, by the way) which appeared the same month. In case you're wondering, the slight coloring error on the S in Comics appears on every copy of this issue. Bondage and hypodermic needle cover by Fine. Overstreet 2011 VF 8.0 value = $3,154. CGC census 2/12: 2 in 8.0, none higher.
