    Adventure Comics #40 (DC, 1939) CGC Apparent FN/VF 7.0 Slight (A) White pages. One of the ten most valuable comic books according to Overstreet, this issue features the first appearance of the Sandman. Overstreet calls the book "rare," a designation the Guide doesn't often use, and indeed this issue is considered among the hardest to find of the Golden Age keys. The striking cover, showing Sandman doing what he does best, is by Creig Flessel. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: small amount of glue on spine of cover, tear seals to centerfold." Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $5,450; VG 4.0 value = $10,800; FN 6.0 value = $16,200.
