    Torchy #5 (Quality, 1950) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. Ten - hut! Now what red-blooded male comic purveyor wouldn't have reacted to this titillating cover by Bill Ward when the issue hit the newsstand in 1950? Shoot, we're reacting to it right now! We won't even mention the lingerie panels inside! Overstreet 2007 VF 8.0 value = $625; VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,013. CGC census 1/08: 2 in 8.5, 3 higher.
