    Description

    Sub-Mariner Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. Subby's inaugural issue came about 18 months after he first appeared in Timely's very first comic book, Marvel Comics #1. Timely took no chances with cover art on this milestone issue, tapping Alex Schomburg to do his thing. Bill Everett and Paul Gustavson handled the interior art. Unlike its sister titles, Marvel Mystery, Captain America, and Human Torch, Subby covers were not soaked in traditional red every issue, giving the run a more diverse "look". No CGC-graded copy has broken the 9.0 barrier yet, making our offering one of the nicest copies around. CGC notes, "Very minor amount of glue on spine of cover," but the book still rates a blue label. Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $7,500; VF 8.0 value = $20,000. From the collection of Nicolas Cage.
