    Zip Comics #2 (MLJ, 1940) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. This is the best copy we've ever offered of a book that's interesting in a couple of respects. The March 1940 cover date puts it early in the superhero era (Hour-Man debuted in Adventure Comics #48 of the same month). Also, while Steel Sterling was the first hero to be called "The Man of Steel," his cover outing here does have similarities to Action Comics #1. With the high grade on this copy, it seems surprising that this book doesn't hail from one of the more prominent Golden Age pedigrees. Overstreet 2015 VF/NM 9.0 value = $2,967; NM- 9.2 value = $4,200. CGC census 8/15: 1 in 9.0, 1 higher.
