    Whirlwind Comics #1 Mile High pedigree (Nita Publication, 1940) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. The Cyclone roars into action on this bright yellow cover, featuring his first appearance, and Nita's first foray into comic publishing. A stunning Mile High example that exudes all of the qualities the collection has come to represent, including corners that do not have a single bit of blunting, a spine that has no blemishes, a back cover with no soil or wear, shiny bright staples, and glossy cover colors that leap right off the page. It's the highest graded copy on CGC's current census report (of only four copies of issue #1 listed), and considering its origin, is probably the best in existence. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $2,750. CGC census 5/06: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
