    Description

    Marvel Mystery Comics #10 (Timely, 1940) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. With all the furor surrounding issue #9, don't overlook this absolutely beautiful copy of #10. Since the last time we sold a 9.4 of #10, Overstreet has increased the top price from $16,500 to $27,000 -- more than a $10,000 increase! We would be shocked if either figure turns out to be enough to secure this copy, but our point is that the issue is now #76 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics, edging out the likes of Young Allies #1, Planet Comics #1, Detective Comics #3, All Star Comics #1, and Famous Funnies #1.
    A beautiful front cover and excellent edges characterize this copy and explain the Near Mint grade!
    This issue had the conclusion of the single biggest event of the Timely years, the first Human Torch/Sub-Mariner battle that started in #8 and raged through 22 pages of #9. Alex Schomburg is the cover artist. Other familiar characters are Ka-Zar and the Angel, and note that this book had the first appearance of Timely regular Terry Vance.
    This specimen is tied with the Chicago pedigree copy at the top of CGC's census. This lovely copy is a top Timely highlight, and it would certainly be the top book in all but the most elite of Timely collections. Overstreet 2013 NM- 9.2 value = $27,000. CGC census 2/14: 5 in 9.4, none higher.
