    Detective Comics #8 Mile High Pedigree (DC, 1937) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. This blockbuster copy was the most prominent comic on the cover of the 1992 Sotheby's Comics and Comic Art auction, and we understand why, as a pre-hero Detective in this condition is headline news. This is one of the first 250 or so comic books ever published, and it pre-dates Action Comics #1 by several months. The classic cover by Creig Flessel makes an impression, so much so that it was appropriated for an issue of Atomic Comics eight years later. It takes a very patient collector to gather a set of pre-hero Detective issues, and you won't want to miss your chance to secure this one. Overstreet 2017 VF 8.0 value = $10,450. CGC census 11/17: 2 in 8.0, 1 higher.
