    Mystery Men Comics #1 (Fox, 1939) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. One of Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics has the first appearance of the Blue Beetle, and it's also one of the tougher of those 100 to find, particularly in unrestored condition. Now to throw some confusion into the mix: the blue-masked character on the cover is not the Blue Beetle but the Green Mask, who starred on most of the early covers, and later had his own series. You can certainly be upset by the coloring on the cover but not with the image, as this bondage cover was rendered by the amazing Lou Fine! The Blue Beetle did stick around for a while, outlasting more than one of his publishers; in fact, a version of him stars in DC comics to the present day. From the Pinnacle Hill collection. Overstreet 2014 VG 4.0 value = $2,000; FN 6.0 value = $3,000. CGC census 8/14: 1 in 5.0, 6 higher.
