    More Fun Comics #53 (DC, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. This issue, the second appearance of the Spectre, is currently #23 in Overstreet's ranking of the most valuable comic books, and the high ranking has to do with the hero's presence as well as the scarcity of the book -- it's a Gerber "8." The Spectre appears in costume on the bondage cover and again at the end of the story, both of which were drawn by Bernard Baily. This book features the start of the Captain Desmo feature (the pilot's previous aerial heroics had been in the pages of Adventure Comics) and a host of other stories as well. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $18,400. CGC census 4/05: 1 in 8.0, 2 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
