    Pep Comics #12 (MLJ, 1941) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. America's first flag-themed superhero, the Shield, has his work cut out for him on this bondage cover by Irv Novick -- look at the creepy sculptor and what he's doing to the distressed damsel! At least the Shield's got some help from his sidekick Dusty the Boy Detective. In addition to the Shield story in this issue (also drawn by Novick), there's the work of Charles Biro and Mort Meskin, plus the origin and first appearance of Fireball, who was MLJ's answer to the Human Torch. As of this writing, only four copies of the book have been certified in any grade, and our offering leads the pack. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $881. CGC census 6/06: 1 in 7.5, none higher.
