    Shadow Comics #1 Mile High Pedigree (Street & Smith, 1940) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. The first comic book appearance of both the Shadow and Doc Savage is almost impossible to find in high grade -- the green spine always seems to pick up color breaks if you so much as breathe on it, and for some reason this book always turns up with a stained or smudged back cover. Not so with this Mile High copy, which is not only the highest graded, but one of just two graded above 7.5. By the way, if you're not familiar with this issue's very cool back cover, be sure to check it out in our online listing. And of course the front cover is striking as well. This is also the very first comic book produced by publisher Street and Smith. Overstreet 2017 VF/NM 9.0 value = $6,975; NM- 9.2 value = $10,000. CGC census 11/17: 1 in 9.0, none higher.
