    Green Lantern #1 Double cover (DC, 1941) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Cream to off-white pages. Ranked number 16 on the 2002 Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, and gaining on most of the field, this is a much sought-after prize. Howard Purcell's cover ranks among comicdom's most famous, while renowned Golden Age artist and Green Lantern creator, Marty Nodell, offers up 54 pages of incredible art for the GL stories inside. This copy has the added bonus of sporting a double cover, the outer grading at F/VF 7.0, while the inner cover checks in at VF/NM 9.0. If you still hesitate, consider that this is the finest copy among quite a few of this dynamite first issue that CGC has graded to date. This is one of the most sparkling jewels of the auction. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $42,000.
