    Adventure Comics #71 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1942) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. The next highest-graded copy as of this writing is (gasp, choke) VF+ 8.5, so think long and hard before passing on this one! The red bar at the top looks superb on this copy (as on all the ones we're offering), and while we've actually seen other copies with pretty nice front covers, we like our back covers to be unencumbered with a ghastly dust shadow, and if you're of a like mind, you'll like Mr. Church's copy. Starman is the cover star, drawn by Jack Burnley, but this issue is more significant for fellow good guy Hourman. It's the first appearance of the latter's Miraclo Machine, which would let him power up without taking pills. Also, Jimmy "Minute Man" Martin, while already a sidekick of sorts to Hourman, actually donned a costume starting in this issue, bringing him more in line with the Sandys and Buckys of the world. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $2,950. CGC census 4/10: 1 in 9.6, none higher. From the Gary Keller Collection.
