    Description

    Top-Notch Comics #2 (MLJ, 1940) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. One of the earliest offerings by MLJ, the publisher that would eventually give us Archie and other true funny book characters. This issue also gives us, according to CGC's notes, the "First comic book Nazi/Swastika cover" as the Wizard observes an Axis plane going down in flames. Edd Ashe Jr. does the cover honors, while the more famous Jack Cole contributes a Manhunters story inside. There is currently only one copy of this issue that has been graded higher by CGC. Overstreet 2003 VF 8.0 value = $1,494; VF/NM 9.0 value = $2,122.
