    Blue Beetle #1 (Fox Features Syndicate, 1939) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. The premiere issue reprinted the Blue Beetle's origin from Mystery Men #1-5.

Lou Fine created the cover. Will Eisner and Charles Nicholas contributed interior artwork. Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $3,298. CGC census 4/10: 1 in 8.0, none higher. From the Gary Keller Collection.
