    Description

    Mystic Comics #1 (Timely, 1940) CGC Apparent VF/NM 9.0 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. One of Timely's earliest titles showcased some of Alex Schomburg's rawest cover creations. Bondage, point-blank shooting, a superhero battling hordes of goons 'n ghouls, meat cleaver and meat hook as weapons, knives galore - and we haven't opened a page yet! The first appearances of Blue Blaze, Dynamic Man, Flexo, and Dakor are in this issue. This is a Gerber "scarce" issue, and it's downright impossible to find one that looks this nice. Considering that CGC has certified just one unrestored copy of #1 with a grade higher than VF- 7.5, this restored beauty looks even nicer. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2005 GD 2.0 value = $1,294; VG 4.0 value = $2,588; FN 6.0 value = $3,882; VF 8.0 value = $9,705; VF/NM 9.0 value = $15,853.
