    Description

    Suspense Comics #3 (Continental Magazines, 1944) CGC Apparent VF 8.0 Moderate to Extensive (B-4) Off-white to white pages. One of the hottest books in the hobby, Overstreet calls the hooded Nazi cultist/bondage cover by Alex Schomburg a "classic", and who are we to argue? First noticed as the frontispiece to Ernst Gerber's Photo-Journal Guide to Comics, interest in the book grew to a fevered frenzy in the late 1990s and continues to this day, with an unrestored VF/NM 9.0 copy selling for more than $170,000 last year! L. B. Cole provided interior art for the book that Overstreet lists as "scarce." CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, reinforced, re-glossed." Overstreet 2016 GD 2.0 value = $6,000; VG 4.0 value = $12,000; FN 6.0 value = $18,000; VF 8.0 value = $36,000.
