    Description

    Detective Comics #6 (DC, 1937) CGC Apparent NM- 9.2 Moderate (P) Off-white pages. This impressive copy is a great example of the potential benefits of professional restoration -- it's been returned to its 1937 form! This pre-superhero issue lived up to its title, with sleuths like Gumshoe Gus plying their trade. The cover is by Creig Flessel and showcases the series' early headliner, Speed Saunders. That character's story in the book was also drawn by Flessel. The other prominent creators involved were writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster; the future Superman creators produced both the Slam Bradley tale here and the story featuring the Spy. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cover cleaned, reinforced, re-glossed. Overstreet 2005 GD 2.0 value = $688; VG 4.0 value = $1,376; FN 6.0 value = $2,064; VF 8.0 value = $3,440; VF/NM 9.0 value = $4,620; NM- 9.2 value = $5,800.
