    Adventure Comics #44 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC Apparent NM+ 9.6 Slight (P) White pages. Restored or not, this would have to be considered one of the most desirable copies of the issue, with the Lamont Larson specimen (blue-label 9.0) the only other serious contender. This early Golden Age issue (bearing the same cover date as Marvel Comics #1) stands out because of its moody, striking Creig Flessel cover. Like most of the Sandman covers in this series, it's not clear to the newsstand browser whether he's looking at a hero or a villain here! It's just the third Sandman cover and the first to show the character in his familiar green suit. CGC notes of the slight professional restoration, "Restoration includes: small amount of color touch on cover, spine split sealed to cover, cover cleaned, cover reinforced." Overstreet 2013 GD 2.0 value = $811; VG 4.0 value = $1,622; FN 6.0 value = $2,433; VF 8.0 value = $5,920; VF/NM 9.0 value = $10,460; NM- 9.2 value = $15,000.
