    Colossus Comics #1 (Sun Publications, 1940) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. A much sought-after book by collectors, this copy will receive considerable attention. The oddity never really got off the ground, folding after this one issue. Rated "scarce" by both Overstreet and Gerber, few high-grade copies have survived to this day. Overstreet guide once described this comic as "An early esoteric book which ties to the esoteric Green Giant comic." The tie-in to Green Giant is that the Colossus character appears in both books, drawn by the same artist, whom CGC identifies as Bernie Wiest. This is one of only two comic issues ever published by Sun, the other being the rare Sun Fun Komiks. Overstreet 2018 VF 8.0 value = $7,600; VF/NM 9.0 value = $13,800. CGC census 11/18: 1 in 8.5, 2 higher.
