    Description

    Suspense Comics #3 (Continental Magazines, 1944) CGC Apparent FN/VF 7.0 Moderate (P) Off-white pages. One of the most infamous, controversial, and sought-after comic covers of all time. And there's just not enough copies to go around! The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books gives it a scarcity index of "9" ("very rare"). Overstreet calls it "scarce," and this year it once again moved up in the Guide's ranking of the Top 100 Golden Age Comics -- It now sits at #37 and has the same Guide value as Wonder Woman #1!
    The horrific Nazi torture and bondage cover is by Golden Age cover artist supreme Alex Schomburg. Another great cover artist, L. B. Cole contributed interior art. Our offering, at Apparent FN/VF 7.0, looks just about as nice as the highest graded unrestored copy that CGC has yet certified -- a VF 8.0 -- CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, reinforced." Overstreet 2013 GD 2.0 value = $5,400; VG 4.0 value = $10,800; FN 6.0 value = $16,200; VF 8.0 value = $32,400. From the Dino Mauricio Golden Age Classic Cover Collection.
