    The Big All-American Comic Book #1 Hawkeye pedigree (DC, 1944) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. A square bound comic that has 128 pages and is over 60 years old would almost never be found in top condition, so a NM- copy is quite a treat indeed. Boy, did this giant issue offer kids their money's worth; just listing the characters would take us quite a while. This comic is from the days when M. C. Gaines' All-American Comics (which published All-Star Comics, Flash Comics, and Sensation Comics) was essentially a separate branch of DC (home of Detective Comics, Action Comics, and more). We believe every significant All-American Comics character is present in this book, not only top superheroes like Flash, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern (and just about every other Justice Society member too), but humor standbys like Mutt and Jeff, and Sheldon Mayer's Scribbly. The list of artists is pretty impressive, too, including Joe Kubert, E. E. Hibbard, Sheldon Mayer, and others. By the way, it's a significant comic in Kubert's career, as it's the very first time the artist worked on Hawkman. Also, some refer to this as the first DC annual. Interest in the book is mounting -- it was added to Overstreet's list of the 100 most valuable Golden Age books last year, and has retained that status this year. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $15,300. CGC census 03/06: 1 in 9.2, 1 higher.
