    Strange Adventures #1 (DC, 1950) CGC VF+ 8.5 White pages. The 1950s sci-fi craze began in earnest with the major motion picture Destination Moon. The 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, 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 2017 VF 8.0 value = $1,477; VF/NM 9.0 value = $3,339. CGC census 2/18: 13 in 8.5, 9 higher.
