    Description

    More Fun Comics #14 (DC, 1936) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Light tan to off-white pages. A key Platinum Age comic, featuring the first superpowered comic book character. Dr. Occult had appeared in previous issues of the series, but this issue saw him get super strength, the power of flight, a blue costume, and a red cape! Reportedly, artists Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster had already conceived the idea for Superman and were giving their concept a tryout of sorts, preceding Supes' debut in Action Comics #1 by more than a year and a half. The issue is a Gerber "7", and high-grade copies probably do not exist -- Overstreet doesn't list values for grades above VF, the highest-grade that CGC has given a copy of this book to date is a 6.5. Overstreet 2010 VG 4.0 value = $3,750; FN 6.0 value = $5,625. CGC census 4/11: 2 in 5.0, 5 higher.
