    U.S.A. Comics #1 Kansas City pedigree (Timely, 1941) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. The Defender charges toward the Nazi thugs on this cover, hellbent on stopping the molten lava from turning the Allied commander into a baked potato. A classic bondage cover, USA #1 also features interior artwork by Basil Wolverton and Simon and Kirby. This copy has a very attractive appearance, featuring rich colors and a clean cover. Light edge wear and some color flaking along the spine keep the book from achieving a higher grade, but considering the rarity of early Golden Age comics, it's still something to behold. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $7,500.
