    Master Comics #1 (Fawcett Publications, 1940) Condition: VF. This oversized comic is in wonderful condition, the only flaws being some scuffing on the spine and a small tear at the bottom near the word "It's." Released a month after the first issue of Whiz Comics. The lead feature, Master Man, lasted only six issues before DC's lawyers kept this Superman-like hero from continuing. Overstreet notes that "#1-6 rarely found in Near Mint or Very Fine condition due to large-size format." Overstreet 2015 VF 8.0 value = $6,315. From the Mel Dybdahl Collection.
