    New Comics #1 (DC, 1935) CBCS GD+ 2.5 Off-white pages. Considering Adventure Comics was the title of this series from issue #32 until the final issue #503 rolled off the presses nearly 50 years after the series began, this book could be considered Adventure Comics #1. The humorous Vincent Sullivan cover belies the importance of this book. This title would eventually bring to the world a slew of important first appearances including that of the Sandman, Superboy, the Legion of Super-Heroes, and Krypto the Wonder Dog. Sheldon Mayer (of Sugar and Spike fame) and Walt Kelly (of Pogo fame) contribute their first published work inside this book. This solid copy of an extremely scarce and important book has a corner missing from the front cover. Overstreet 2016 GD 2.0 value = $2,333. CGC census 11/16: 0 in 2.5, 7 higher.
