    Robert Kanigher How to Make Money Writing for Comics Magazines (Cambridge House, 1943) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. In 1943 Kanigher wrote How to Make Money Writing, which included a section on comics, making it the earliest work on the topic -- four years earlier than Stan Lee's tome, Secrets Behind the Comics. Contents include a Captain Marvel sample script and a 14-page Steel Sterling comic story sample with art by Irv Novick. 92 pages. If the book wasn't scarce enough, check out the astounding CGC grade of this example -- you aren't likely to find a copy of this seminal work in better condition. Compared to Golden Age comics from the same era, this important work of comics history/memorabilia is sure to be a bargain. CGC census 10/11: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
