    Description

    Adventure Comics #40 (DC, 1939) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. This is the first copy of #40 that we have seen in four years. The classic cover, by Creig Flessel, introduced the world to the Sandman and his exotic Gas Gun. Currently listed as the #23 book on Overstreet's list of Top 100 Golden Age Comics, Adventure #40 contains the first conceived Sandman story (his New York World's Fair Comics appearance was the first to be published). This issue is listed as "rare" by Overstreet and unrestored copies seem to be particularly hard to find. CGC notes, "'Best Wishes, Creig Flessel' written on 1st page in pencil." Overstreet 2019 FN 6.0 value = $21,000; VF 8.0 value = $52,000. CGC census 5/20: 3 in 7.0, 2 higher.
