    Top-Notch Laugh Comics #29 Mile High pedigree (MLJ, 1942) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. This is one of the more bizarre hybrids we've seen, starting with the cover, with the Black Hood yukking it up with "Pokey Oakey, the funny guy." No, we're not making this up! Pokey Oakey of Catfish Creek was the new star of the book, along with some other humor features, though the Black Hood did continue to conduct his grim business in these pages. We should note that the cover is by none other than Bob Montana, creator of Archie! This was only the second issue to be billed as Top-Notch Laugh Comics on the cover, and the series eventually became Laugh Comix (not to be confused with the same publisher's long-running Laugh Comics). While Gerber only assigned this issue a "5," we have a feeling it's a lot scarcer than that -- we hadn't ever seen one before today, and this is the only copy CGC has certified thus far. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $900. CGC census 2/05: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
