    Blue Beetle #16 Pennsylvania pedigree (Fox Features Syndicate, 1942) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. One of the very earliest superheroes, first appearing in Mystery Men Comics #1 in August, 1939, Blue Beetle carried his own title for over a decade. Except for the first few issues and later issues featuring the "good girl" artistry of Jack Kamen and Matt Baker, the values are surprisingly reasonable. We offer this great example from 1942 that is the only copy of this issue yet graded by CGC. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $252.
