    Description

    King Comics #7 (David McKay Publications, 1936) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white pages. This is the only copy CGC has certified to date of this Platinum Age issue, and the only copy we've ever seen here at Heritage. The book's got all the top characters the King Features Syndicate had to offer, led by Flash Gordon (drawn by Alex Raymond) and Mandrake the Magician. And while those two aren't on the cover, look who is: Popeye, falling victim to a prank by the one and only Henry, to the amusement of Jiggs from the "Bringing Up Father" strip! And don't forget Eugene the Jeep, hanging on for dear life, and Wimpy, who deals with it like he deals with every situation -- by eating a burger. A minor (1/4-inch) spine split is evidently what caused this copy's modest grade, but when you consider the page quality, the snow-white front and back covers, the page quality, and the era this book is from, it's probable that no better copy of this issue exists. CGC notes, "3 pieces of tape on interior cover." Overstreet 2005 VG 4.0 value = $180; FN 6.0 value = $270. CGC census 3/05: 1 in 5.0, none higher.
