    The Human Torch 2 (#1) (Timely, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. That's right! It's bold! It's bad! It's the third biggest (i.e., Overstreet value) Timely book of all, ranking number 24 among all Golden Age comic books, and moving up the charts! It's fall of 1940, and the Human Torch, Toro, and the Sub-Mariner are already taking on Nazis in this Alex Schomburg cover. The Torch by Carl Burgos, Subby by Bill Everett; it doesn't get any Timelier than this. The origin and intro of Toro is featured in this Gerber "uncommon" book, our copy of which currently ranks behind only two copies that CGC has certified to date. And one of those is barely ahead at VF+ 8.5. Overstreet 2003 VF 8.0 value = $20,000.
