    Zip Comics #1 Windy City Pedigree (MLJ, 1940) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. One of the earliest MLJs (this issue hails from the company's third month of publishing comics), this awesome copy of the first issue of the superhero title contains the origins of the Scarlet Avenger and Steel Sterling, the Man of Steel. The Charles Biro cover features Sterling, in high-flying action! Not an easy find period, let alone in a grade this high! With only ten copies currently grading above FN/VF 7.0, this one should really grab your attention. Overstreet 2017 VF 8.0 value = $3,350; VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,925. CGC census 11/17: 1 in 8.5, 3 higher.
