    Description

    More Fun Comics #73 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1941) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. Overstreet and Gerber agree this is a "scarce" issue -- and Edgar Church ensured that this particular copy is unique! The issue also just happens to be one of the most sought-after keys in a run that's riddled with key Golden Age issues. Best known for the origin and first appearance of Aquaman, #73 also features the first appearances of Green Arrow and Speedy. This breathtaking example from the Mile High collection is -- no surprise here! -- the finest known copy. Howard Sherman provided the cover art and contributed story art, as did Bernard Baily, George Papp, and Paul Norris. CGC notes, "Very minor amount of color touch on cover. Very minor amount of glue on cover." What appears to be a white defect on the front cover is actually a mark on the CGC inner seal; the comic book itself is not affected. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $28,000. CGC census 9/09: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
