    Description

    Wow Comics #2 Lost Valley pedigree (Henle, 1936) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. Aka Wow, What A Magazine! Issue #2 is a Gerber "10" as well as a "white space" (i.e. Ernst Gerber couldn't even find a copy to photograph). This is the first copy we've ever offered of this pre-Golden Age ultra-toughie. This is just the second comic Will Eisner ever worked on, and a very young Bob Kane was a contributor. Popeye and Fu Manchu adventures lead a mix of features. Note the presence of a painted cover, surely one of the first ever on a comic book! Since none of the few copies we've seen of #1 were even close to Very Fine, we suggest you don't pass up this superb copy of #2. It's no lock that you'll find another one in any grade. Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $1,279. CGC census 1/10: 1 in 8.0, none higher.
