    Description

    Detective Comics #4 (DC, 1937) CGC VG- 3.5 Cream to off-white pages. You could definitely call this a tough find in any grade - just one unrestored copy has been graded higher by CGC to date. The issue is a Gerber "8." Creig Flessel drew the issue's cover featuring Speed Saunders as well as the story featuring the character. Speed was not one to waste time - as readers learned: "In contrast to the methodical Sherlock Holmes type of sleuth, Speed relies on nerve and an uncanny sense of hunches!" Meanwhile, the Jerry Siegel/Joe Shuster team added two features to the issue. CGC notes, "Tape on cover." Overstreet 2006 VG 4.0 value = $1,900. CGC census 5/06: 2 in 3.5, 1 higher. From the collection of Patrick Marchbanks.
