    Description

    Strange Adventures #8 (DC, 1951) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. This isn't just any gorilla cover, it's arguably the most famous gorilla cover of all, because it's the comic that started the gorilla craze at DC. As the book Comics: Between The Panels reported, "When the circulation figures on the book tumbled in, (editor Julius) Schwartz said, 'The editor-in-chief came in and said, 'What happened to the circulation, it almost doubled in sales.' I looked at it and said, 'Maybe it was the gorilla.'" As the saying goes, the rest is history! By the way, the issue has interior art by Alex Toth and Gil Kane. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $1,240. CGC census 11/05: 2 in 9.2, 2 higher.
