    Description

    Shield-Wizard Comics #1 Billy Wright pedigree (MLJ, 1940) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. In the summer of 1940 taking a comic book character from an anthology title and giving him his own series was still a risky maneuver (DC and Fox were the only publishers who had yet attempted it) so MLJ hedged its bets slightly with this two-character showcase of the Shield (from Pep Comics) and the Wizard (from Top-Notch). Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $9,500. CGC census 2/12: 2 in 9.2, 1 higher.
