    Sensation Comics #1 (DC, 1942) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. This key comic, from the incredible Sun City collection, a collection from El Paso, Texas, comprised entirely of #1 or first issues, is ranked among the 25 most valuable comics in the hobby by Overstreet, and the Sun City copy is one of the best you'll ever find. It's the second appearance of the number one superheroine in comics, Wonder Woman, in an issue released just one month after she was first seen in All Star Comics #8. Also making their debuts were two other DC heroes of note, neither of whom had super powers, but both of whom packed a real punch: Mr. Terrific and Wildcat. H. G. Peter drew the Wonder Woman story; the issue's other artists include Sheldon Moldoff, Irwin Hasen, and Howard Purcell. The number of existing copies of this issue is "less than average" according to Gerber, and that, coupled with Wonder Woman's ever-increasing popularity, means that this book will only become more sought-after with the passage of time. It is currently tied for the #25 spot on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. Overstreet 2019 VF 8.0 value = $60,000; VF/NM 9.0 value = $105,000. CGC census 11/19: 4 in 8.5, 4 higher. From the Sun City Collection, an Original Owner Collection from El Paso, Texas.
