    Description

    Superworld Comics #2 (Hugo Gernsback, 1940) Condition: VG/FN. The entire 3-issue run is "scarce", according to Overstreet, but Gerber rates this issue "rare", even more scarce than issues #1 and 3. The cover's by Frank R. Paul; inside is the first appearance of Marvo 1-2 Go+, the Super Boy of the Year 2680. That unwieldy series title may have hastened the demise of this short-lived title by wearing the reader out before getting through the splash page! Still, these are pretty cool in a very esoteric way, not to mention raw and ready to read! There has been some color touch on the cover, but it's hard to detect from the outside. There's plenty of rich colors and gloss on the black-ground nugget. There's also a tear that runs through the entire issue, starting as a 1/2 inch blemish on the front cover and gradually diminishing with each progressive page. Overstreet 2007 GD 2.0 value = $413; VG 4.0 value = $826; FN 6.0 value = $1,239.
