    The Human Torch #5 (Timely, 1941) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. We have never offered a copy of issue #5 that has topped this one in grade, to date, and just seven other unrestored copies have managed as high a grading as FN/VF 7.0. The Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner take time out from fighting Nazis to engage in a little horseplay, in true Marvel fashion, of course. Who else you gonna hone your fighting skills on, but another superhero? It's a 60-page epic that starts with this typically over-the-top Alex Schomburg cover. Only serious bidders with great taste and great Golden Age collections deserve this book! Overstreet 2014 VF 8.0 value = $4,855; VF/NM 9.0 value = $8,578. CGC census 11/14: 5 in 8.5, 1 higher. From the High Five Collection.
