    Description

    Popular Comics #1 (Dell, 1936) CGC VG 4.0 Off-white to white pages. Dell's first comic book featured reprints of some of the most popular comic strips of the day, including Dick Tracy (making his first comic book appearance), Gasoline Alley, The Gumps, Little Orphan Annie, Terry and the Pirates, Don Winslow (first appearance), Moon Mullins, Mutt & Jeff, Tailspin Tommy, Smokey Stover, and others. Difficult to find at all (we've only offered this issue once before), the book's virtually impossible to find in high grade. Overstreet doesn't bother listing values beyond that for VF 8.0, and listing even that grade value may have been unnecessary, since this VG copy represents the highest grade that CGC has awarded to date for the issue. It's rated by The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books as a "7" or "scarce." Overstreet 2007 VG 4.0 value = $1,480. CGC census 12/07: 1 in 4.0, none higher.
