    Description

    Miss America Magazine V1#2 Mile High pedigree (Timely, 1944) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. It takes a lot to stand out in a catalog that's got Mile High copies on every page, but this book accomplished that feat, and it should be the object of fervent desire for many a collector. It's the first appearance of Patsy Walker, and also of her archrival Hedy Wolfe and her boyfriend Buzz Baxter, all of whom would be seen in Patsy Walker for 20 years, in Patsy and Hedy and other spinoff titles, and who would still be appearing in comics in the Bronze Age. This issue also has another comic story starring the title character, and look at the All-American 1940s gal Timely found to portray her! Miss America's origin is revealed here as well. And of course, the crowning glory of this copy is that it's your basic amazing Mile High book, and it's the only copy certified with a grade above 8.0 by CGC to date. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $1,775. CGC census 8/06: 1 in 9.4, none higher.From the John McLaughlin Collection.
