    Adventure Comics #73 (DC, 1942) CGC Apparent VG+ 4.5 Slight (A) Off-white pages. The third most valuable issue in the illustrious run of this title is considered "scarce" by both Overstreet and The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books. We believe 'em, since our experience has been limited to having offered the issue on just five previous occasions in the past six years! The Simon and Kirby cover -- an Overstreet "classic" -- introduces Manhunter to comics, and the duo also draws his origin story inside, where other contributing artists include Jack Burnley and Bernard Baily. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: moderate color touch, tear seals, glue on cover (top of cover trimmed)(tape on interior cover & centerfold.) Overstreet 2007 GD 2.0 value = $1,243; VG 4.0 value = $2,486.
