    Description

    Boy Commandos #1 (DC, 1942) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. It may not have been exactly "torn from the headlines," as the cover blurb states, but this Joe Simon/Jack Kirby "kids go to war" concept was lots of fun for the readers! The Commandos made their debut in Detective Comics #64, and their own title ran a respectable 36 issues, ending in 1949, long after the last shots of World War II were fired. Another patriotic DC character, Liberty Belle, was featured with an origin story in this issue. The striking cover by Simon and Kirby, showing the boys in blue against a red and yellow background, is considered "classic" by Overstreet. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $1,587; VF 8.0 value = $3,703. CGC census 11/05: 4 in 7.0, 7 higher.
