    Adventure Comics #72 (DC, 1942) CGC VG- 3.5 Cream to off-white pages. When Simon and Kirby joined DC, it was quite a landmark event. This issue's Sandman story has S&K's very first work for the company, coming just a couple of issues after the character had been revamped (getting a more superhero-like costume and the addition of sidekick Sandy). 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). Overstreet 2005 VG 4.0 value = $2,058. CGC census 1/05: 1 in 3.5, 6 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
