    Don Winslow of the Navy #1 (Merwil Publishing, 1937) CGC VF- 7.5 White pages. Hold everything! When we heard that a Don Winslow #1 was arriving at Heritage HQ, we were expecting a 1940s Fawcett, not a pre-Golden Age book with a painted cover! This is a cross between a comic and a pulp: it's comic size and staple-bound, with 16 pages of color comics, but there's also a full-length text novel starring Don Winslow. The comic part has art by Sheldon Mayer, featuring Captain Colorful and Jupiter Jones (no relation to the teen detective of later years). We feel comfortable calling this a rare item -- we hadn't seen one before today, and a total of two have been certified by CGC to date. Overstreet doesn't list a value above VF, so there's a good chance that this is the best copy out there. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $4,700. CGC census 12/05: 1 in 7.5, none higher.
