    Captain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC Apparent VF/NM 9.0 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. Captain America is one of the most beloved characters of all, that's why this comic, his origin and first appearance, is one of the most treasured of all. There was certainly plenty of evil afoot in '41, and the fiend behind most of it, one Adolf Hitler, gets a well deserved punch in the face on one of the most famous comic book covers ever. Two other pretty important characters made their debuts in the issue: the evil Red Skull, who would menace Cap for the remainder of the century, and Cap's loyal sidekick Bucky Barnes. Creative geniuses Joe Simon and Jack Kirby drew the origin story, while the cover is a solo effort by Kirby. We've had the good fortune to see a few copies of this comic here at Heritage, and most have been well-thumbed after many re-readings, so this clean-looking, professionally restored copy is a sight for sore eyes. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced, staples cleaned. (Married centerfold)." Overstreet 2004 GD 2.0 value = $6,944; VG 4.0 value = $13,888; FN 6.0 value = $20,832; VF 8.0 value = $49,200; VF/NM 9.0 value = $87,100.
