    Adventure Comics #69 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1941) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. This key issue has the first appearance of the "new look" Sandman, complete with colorful superhero costume, and the debut of his sidekick Sandy the Golden Boy. This new Sandman is so firmly associated with Simon and Kirby that it's easy to forget that Paul Norris handled the art chores here (with S&K not taking over until #72). Adding to the mystique of this book is the fact that this important story has never been reprinted (not that we recommend thumbing through the Mile High copy if you win it)! Starman is the cover feature, drawn by Jack Burnley. We actually sold the CGC 9.4 copy from Nicolas Cage's collection, and while that had everything a collector could want, it did not have quite the bold colors of this Mile High. We keep mentioning the way the bright yellows look on the entire run, and if you are able to see the books in person you will see what all the fuss is about. Overstreet 2007 NM- 9.2 value = $2,900. CGC census 1/08: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
