    Daring Mystery Comics #1 (Timely, 1940) CGC FN 6.0 Off-white pages. This very early Timely title hit the newsstands just three months after Marvel Comics #1. Featuring an Alex Schomburg cover that must have turned heads in 1940, this issue has the origin and first appearance of the Fiery Mask, shown here trying to impress a bondaged miss, and wondering if his new uniform is color-coordinated. Gerber says it's a "scarce" issue, and CGC has seen only one other unrestored copy worthy of a higher grade. The "Very minor amount of glue on cover" noted by CGC was too insignificant to warrant anything but the CGC Universal Grade encasement. Grab a slice of historical Timely gold with this great book. This copy comes with the Certificate of Authenticity for the White Rose Collection. Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $5,400.
