    Whiz Comics #25 (Fawcett, 1941) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white to white pages. This issue's dynamic "shoulder to the grindstone" cover by C. C. Beck would be reason enough to want this Golden Age prize, but the real attraction is, of course, the introduction of Captain Marvel Jr. Golden Age great Mac Raboy brings this youthful new member of the Marvel family to life in this, his first appearance and origin. The story would be continued in Master Comics #22, which would then become the home for Freddy Freeman, aka Captain Marvel Jr. And if that isn't enough to whet your appetite, there's an origin of old Shazam told in text! This sharp copy looks much nicer to our eyes than the fairly modest CGC-assigned grade, displaying bright, rich cover colors. Overstreet 2006 VG 4.0 value = $1,090; FN 6.0 value = $1,635. CGC census 7/06: 3 in 5.0, 13 higher.
