    Description

    Marvel Mystery Comics #2 (Timely, 1939) CGC VF- 7.5 White pages. After the success of Marvel #1, Goodman kicked off the series by adding "Mystery" to the title and changing the cover style. Marvel would not settle into its familiar format until #3, when the familiar pulp logo and red-drenched covers began in earnest. Copies of #2 frequently turn up with faded colors, particularly reds that appear more like a pale orange. This one exhibits deep reds and a bright canary yellow cover, making it one of the most attractive copies in existence. The book looks immaculate, with spine stresses visible on the back cover and the slightest pull at the staples. CGC notes a very minor amount of glue on the cover. For anyone who has seen a few copies of this book over the years, this is truly something to behold in comparison. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $14,750.
