    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 simply doesn't get much better than this A+ copy of Wings Comics #1, the first issue of a series that ran for 14 years and provided a ton of aerial 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 of that ilk. Overstreet 2014 NM- 9.2 value = $4,500. CGC census 5/15: 1 in 9.8, none higher.
