    Description

    Startling Comics #53 (Better Publications, 1948) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. Thank you, Alex Schomburg, for another smashing cover, this time featuring a lady built like a "brick shipyard". That lady's stacked, that's a fact, and we ain't holdin' nothin' back about the rest of the comic, which features artists Dave Berg and Al Hartley. What a shame that this was the last issue of the title. Only two copies of this book have been certified with higher grades by CGC to date. Overstreet 2004 VF 8.0 value = $375.
