    Wonder Comics #1 (Fox, 1939) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. One of the highlight books of this auction -- It's the very best blue label copy that we have ever seen of this Overstreet "scarce" and Gerber "rare" issue, which was on the stands at exactly the same time as Detective Comics #27. Will Eisner is the Wonder Man cover artist. Wonder Man was just a little too similar to an already established superhero, and Fox was immediately slapped with a lawsuit by DC (National Periodical) for infringement on Superman, causing Fox to withdraw Wonder Man from any future issues. An important book in comics history! Eisner, Bob Kane, and Bob Powell art. Overstreet 2016 NM- 9.2 value = $40,000. CGC census 11/16: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
