    USA Comics #3 (Timely, 1941) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books gives Jack Kirby credit for this Captain Terror cover, which does display absurd elements of lunatic villainy and torture that King Kirby was fond of employing (as artistic depiction, that is). CGC opts for Joe Simon, Kirby's usual partner in artistic endeavors during the Golden Age. Other well-known contributors to this issue were artists Syd Shores and Mike Sekowsky, and a fuzzy-faced Stan Lee, author of the Rocketman story. This bright, colorful-covered copy bears the highest-grade CGC has assigned to date for this issue. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $3,400.
