    New Comics #1 (DC, 1935) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. This is the first issue of DC Comics' second series! Overstreet doesn't list values for grades above VF for this Platinum Age book, and that's understandable -- other than this copy none have been graded above FN/VF 7.0 by CGC.

    This issue appeared more than a year earlier than Detective Comics #1, and two and a half years before Action Comics #1! This series ran 11 issues as New Comics before turning into New Adventure Comics and then becoming the title DC fans of every generation grew up with, Adventure Comics. The series had a lifespan of 48 years and 503 issues, and this key first issue is ranked among the 100 most valuable comic books by Overstreet. It's got a cover by Vin Sullivan. Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value (highest value listed) = $19,500. CGC census 4/10: 1 in 9.2, none higher. From the Gary Keller Collection.
