    Description

    Superman #17 (DC, 1942) CGC VF+ 8.5 White pages. Here's a comic that'll be very tough to pass up. For one thing, it's got a great Fred Ray cover, with Superman teaching Hitler and Hirohito a lesson. For another, the story (drawn by John Sikela) has the first appearance of what, in later years, would be called the Fortress of Solitude (dubbed "Secret Citadel and Mountain Retreat" here). And last, but by no means least, this is the second highest-graded copy of the issue that CGC has certified to date, and it's the highest-graded copy that we have ever offered. The super page quality is an added bonus! Lex Luthor appearance. Overstreet 2016 VF 8.0 value = $5,526; VF/NM 9.0 value = $9,763. CGC census 11/16: 3 in 8.5, 3 higher.
