    Description

    Wings Comics #1 Mile High pedigree (Fiction House, 1940) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. If you collect Fiction House, it doesn't get much better than this A-plus copy of Wings #1, the first issue of a series that ran for 14 years and provided many thrills along the way. Wings was one of the earliest handful of comic book titles published by the company, and it was modeled closely on the Wings pulp magazine which was also published by Fiction House. This debut issue's cover set the tone for the action-packed series; as Jim Steranko put it, "Wings covers attacked the reader. Thunderbolts, Wildcats, and Avengers roared right off the paper." And this grey tone example is certainly in that vein. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $4,000. CGC census 4/10: 1 in 9.8, none higher.
