    Adventure Comics #54 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages. The spine of this copy will make a believer out of you if for some reason you haven't yet jumped on the Mile High bandwagon. And if that doesn't do it, the bright, unsmudged yellows will. We've seen a few decent copies of this in our day, but even the VF+ 8.5 Larson looks like chopped liver next to this Edgar Church copy (and those two copies are the only ones certified above FN 6.0 as of this writing). The cover star is the Hour Man, a character who still appears in DC comics to this day. He's assisted by his sidekicks the Minute Men of America here, with Bernard Baily handling the cover art. The ever-spooky Sandman, this series' original superhero, is seen on a cover vignette and of course inside. Overstreet 2007 NM- 9.2 value = $3,400. CGC census 1/08: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
