    Speed Comics #1 (Brookwood, 1939) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. Shock Gibson was one of the few early Golden Age heroes who managed to generate his own super power -- did you know that? Although best known as a Harvey Comics character, the title was actually published by another company that Alfred Harvey later bought out. Early issues are always tough to find -- in fact, only four unrestored copies of issue #1 have been certified to date by CGC, this being one of the best. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $2,158; VF/NM 9.0 value = $3,654. CGC census 10/06: 2 in 8.5, none higher.
