    The Human Torch #2 (#1) (Timely, 1940) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. Alex Schomburg's cover is one of his most significant, and the master created over 500 during his Golden Age heyday. Among Golden Age Timelys, only Marvel Mystery Comics #1 and Captain America #1 rank ahead of this milestone issue in value. Featuring the Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner, Carl Burgos and Bill Everett, respectively, provide the interior story art. This Golden Age key also includes a bevy of features such as The Falcon, The Fiery Mask, Mantor the Magician, and Microman. This near-perfect copy is easily the highest-graded that CGC has certified to date for this issue, one of the most important comic books of the Golden or any other Age. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $40,000.
