    Description

    Zip Comics #1 (MLJ, 1940) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. One of the Golden Age keys for MLJ, and one of the publisher's earliest issues, this one had the origins of the Scarlet Avenger and Steel Sterling. Other features beginning in this issue were Mr. Satan and Captain Valor. Mort Meskin and Edd Ashe contributed interior art. The copies CGC has certified nicer than this: not quite zip, but to date just a single copy ranks ahead of our offering in CGC's census for issue #1. Overstreet 2008 VF/NM 9.0 value = $6,161; NM- 9.2 value = $8,800. CGC census 1/09: 2 in 9.0, 1 higher.
