    Description

    New Comics #1 (DC, 1935) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. Here's a piece of DC history -- the first issue of only the second series DC ever published, appearing more than a year earlier than Detective Comics #1! This title ran 11 issues before turning into New Adventure Comics. Thereafter it became Adventure Comics, and this series that began in the Platinum Age made it all the way to the Modern Age, with a lifespan of 48 years and 503 issues. This key first issue is ranked among the 100 most valuable comic books by Overstreet. You may be surprised to learn that the book has Walt Kelly art, DC not being a publisher he's usually associated with. There's also art by Sheldon Mayer and Whitney Ellsworth. The cover is by Vin Sullivan. Overstreet doesn't list values for grades above VF for the book, and according to CGC's census, only one copy of the issue has been graded higher than our offering. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $8,700; VF 8.0 value = $20,000. CGC census 1/05: 2 in 7.0, 1 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
