    Description

    Top-Notch Comics #2 Mile High pedigree (MLJ, 1940) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. This is one of the earliest offerings by MLJ, the publisher that would eventually give us Archie and then change the company name to Archie. The issue has the first appearance of a Nazi swastika on a comic book cover according to Overstreet. It's amazing in a way, since the Pep issues of the same era didn't even come out and call the villains Germans, relying on "Nordics" and other such vague terms. Edd Ashe did the cover honors for this issue, while the more famous Jack Cole contributed a Manhunters story. "Top-notch" is certainly the appropriate term for this Edgar Church copy, it's the best one yet certified by CGC. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $3,200. CGC census 7/05: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
