    Whiz Comics #2 (#1) (Fawcett, 1940) CGC FN- 5.5 Off-white to white pages. The Lambert Collection affords yet another super-key from the Golden Age of Comics, the milestone issue featuring the origin and the first appearance of Superman's most formidable rival (in sales anyway), Captain Marvel. No issue number is indicated on the cover of this premiere issue of Whiz Comics, but the inside indicia specifies "#2." So, if this is the first issue, what's with the "#2"? Very simply "#1" belongs to both Flash #1 (not the DC character, though) and Thrill Comics #1. Huh? Just trust us; this is the first issue of Whiz! Incredibly, our mid-grade copy is the second-highest graded unrestored copy CGC has certified to date of the issue. Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $21,000.
