    Marvel Mystery Comics #8 (Timely, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white to white pages. Alex Schomburg had pretty much taken over as the official cover artist of the title, but Bill Everett managed to squeeze in a tasty treat of superhero/monster/shackled babe fare of his own on this uncommonly yellow-background cover. The Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner battle for the first time in a tussle that would require three issues to conclude. Paul Gustavson and Carl Burgos help out Everett with interior art. Overstreet 2013 FN 6.0 value = $4,200; VF 8.0 value = $10,500. CGC census 5/14: 2 in 6.5, 10 higher.
