    Mystery Men Comics #1 (Fox, 1939) CGC VG- 3.5 Cream to off-white pages. The first appearance of the Blue Beetle is one of Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics, and one of the tougher ones to find -- in fact, Gerber rates it a "7" ("scarce"). Note: Due to a coloring mistake, the blue-masked character on the cover is actually the Green Mask, who also debuted in this issue. The Blue Beetle has outlasted more than one publisher, and versions of him have been popular mainstays in DC comics since the '80s. The bondage cover by Lou Fine. The interior art is by Charles Nicholas, George Tuska, Dick Briefer, and Arthur Peddy. Overstreet 2018 VG 4.0 value = $2,900. CGC census 11/18: 4 in 3.5, 11 higher.
