    Superman #17 (DC, 1942) CGC VF 8.0 White pages. It's been more than three years since we've seen a copy of this issue in this high grade and with white pages -- the last 8.0 copy to be auctioned (in February of 2010) sold for over $10,000 -- more than triple the Guide value. The Hitler and Hirohito cover by Fred Ray borders on classic and this issue also marked the first appearance of the Fortress of Solitude, called "the secret citadel and mountain retreat" initially. And Lex Luthor makes an appearance, as rendered by the inimitable Joe Shuster. Don't miss out on this clean, keen "Super"-key! Overstreet 2012 VF 8.0 value = $3,154. CGC census 5/13: 4 in 8.0, 2 higher.
