    Adventure Comics #43 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages. As you gaze upon this pristine Mile High copy, keep in mind how old this comic is -- though the issue number sounds high, this came out at the same time as Action #17, and titles like All Star Comics hadn't even hit the stands yet! Our copy of this Adventure issue is the only one graded above 6.5 that CGC has certified to date. The seafaring cover by Fred Guardineer was an appetizer for an issue packed with adventure yarns. The key character is the Sandman, who made one of his earliest appearances in this story drawn by Bert Christman. Also on hand are characters such as playboy adventurer Barry O'Neill, amiable boxer Socko Strong, and the Federal Men (written by Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel). Bob Kane added a humor feature. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $4,500. CGC census 7/05: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
