    Red Raven Comics #1 (Timely, 1940) CGC Apparent VF- 7.5 Slight (P) Cream to off-white pages. One of Overstreet's top 100 Golden Age books, this marked the first time the name "Jack Kirby" was signed to a comic (the artist, whose real name was Jacob Kurtzberg, had previously used other pseudonyms). This was just Timely's fourth title, trailing only Marvel (Mystery), Daring Mystery, and Mystic... and there never was a second issue of Red Raven. Most surviving copies of this book have restoration of some kind. When Heritage previously offered this copy in 2002, it was certified 8.0 and as a Kansas City pedigree copy; CGC chose to drop the "Kansas City" certification when the book was re-submitted. A very tough Timely! Cover art by Kirby. Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $1,185; VG 4.0 value = $2,370; FN 6.0 value = $3,555; VF 8.0 value = $8,900.
