    Young Allies Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white pages. The Young Allies burst onto the scene with this issue, which features the group's origin and first appearance. Making up the team were Captain America's sidekick Bucky Barnes, the Human Torch's pal Toro, and a colorful crew of like-minded youngsters (who often had to be rescued by the other two). And if even that isn't momentous enough for you, how about the fact that the story has the first-ever meeting of the Human Torch and Captain America? Overstreet has noted the increasing interest in this comic: the 2004 Guide moved it up in its rankings of the most valuable Golden Age books, elevating it to the top 50. The interior art is by Charles Nicholas, and the story is by Stan Lee ("The Man" was just a boy back then!). Jack Kirby, who co-created the group with Joe Simon, draws the issue's cover, which shows the Red Skull and Hitler getting what they so richly deserved: a punch in the face. CGC notes, "2 small pieces of tape on centerfold." Overstreet 2004 FN 6.0 value = $3,939; VF 8.0 value = $9,848.
