    What Do You Know About This Comics Seal of Approval? #nn (DC, 1955) CGC VG/FN 5.0. What do you know about this giveaway comic? We had certainly never seen one before -- it's no surprise that Overstreet dubs it "rare." This is one comic book you can even leave in the CGC slab and still read most of it, as it's only four pages long and was produced without a cover. It has art by DC standby Win Mortimer, and the story features a newsdealer briefing some concerned parents on the workings of the Comics Code. The whole thing exudes respectability -- Judge Charles F. Murphy, head of the Code, is shown saying "We can't show one pirate stabbing another, even if (Robert Louis) Stevenson did write it!" If you're a collector of comic book lore, Seduction of the Innocent, etc., this one is a must-have. This is the only copy of this comic that CGC has certified to date. Overstreet 2004 VG 4.0 value = $137; FN 6.0 value = $205. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini.
