    Description

    Strange Adventures #1 (DC, 1950) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. The 1950s sci-fi craze began in earnest with the major motion picture "Destination Moon." This big-budget production was the era's equivalent to such later films as "2001 A Space Odyssey," depicting space travel in a realistic manner never before seen in the old Flash Gordon serials and their like. This comic, DC's initial foray into the genre, naturally featured an adaptation of "Destination Moon," along with a photo cover. In addition, there's a feature on H. G. Wells, with art by Batman artist Dick Sprang, plus the first Chris KL-99 story with art by Howard Sherman. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $1,986; VF/NM 9.0 value = $3,493. CGC census 10/06: 6 in 8.5, 5 higher.
