    Suspense Comics #3 (Continental Magazines, 1944) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. One of the hottest books in comicdom, due to the Overstreet "classic" cover by Alex Schomburg, which was re-introduced to collectors when it appeared in the front of Ernst Gerber's Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books Volume 1, back in 1989. Overstreet lists the book as "scarce", and it is currently ranked as the #29 book on Overstreet's list of Top 100 Golden Age Comics. Gerber rates the book a "9" or "very rare", causing such enthusiastic collector interest, and the high prices that any copy of this book generates. Overstreet 2019 VG 4.0 value = $16,600; FN 6.0 value = $24,900. CGC census 3/20: 1 in 5.0, 5 higher.
