    Adventure Comics #72 (DC, 1942) CGC Apparent VF/NM 9.0 Moderate (P) Off-white to white pages. Simon and Kirby's first work for DC came in this issue. And while it wasn't S&K who revamped the Sandman, their work on the new, more superhero-like incarnation of the character was a memorable stint indeed. The other artists (and characters in the issue) are certainly no slouches -- among them are Jack Burnley (Starman), Creig Flessel (the Shining Knight), and Bernard Baily (Hourman). CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2006 GD 2.0 value = $1,029; VG 4.0 value = $2,058; FN 6.0 value =$3,087; VF 8.0 value = $7,718; VF/NM 9.0 value = $13,109.
