    New Comics #2 (DC, 1936) CGC Apparent VG+ 4.5 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. This extremely rare issue has not ever been offered by Heritage before in any grade. This one made Comic Book Marketplace's list of the "50 Rarest Golden Age Comic Books," which had it tied with New Fun #2 as the rarest newsstand-distributed DCs. Overstreet calls the book rare as well. This is just the ninth comic issue DC ever published. New Comics eventually became Adventure Comics, and it was just DC's second series, with New Fun being the first. New Comics was just the second anthology title with original, continuing characters -- remember that its competition on the stands was Famous Funnies, which though significant, was an all-reprint affair. Making its first appearance in this issue was the long-running Federal Men feature, the work of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, more than two years before Action Comics introduced their character Superman. The cover art is credited to R. B. Leffingwell. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, reinforced." Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $1,200; VG 4.0 value = $2,400.
