    Doc Savage Comics #1 Mile High pedigree (Street & Smith, 1940) CGC VF/NM 9.0 White pages. According to lore, Doc Savage was the main inspiration for Superman, so it was only right that the pulp hero got his own comic book. This was the second title produced by Street and Smith, following Shadow Comics, which had featured Doc Savage in a backup feature. Also appearing in this comic were a number of other pulp heroes, most notably Walter Gibson's Norgil the Magician. A sensational painted cover whetted readers' appetites. The book is a Gerber "7," and tied with one other copy for highest-graded of this issue by CGC to date. Overstreet 2006 VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,698; NM- 9.2 value = $8,000. CGC census 7/06: 2 in 9.0, none higher.
