    Popular Comics #1 (Dell, 1936) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white to white pages. Gerber considers this book to be a "7" or "scarce" on their Scarcity Index, and the fact that we have only offered four copies previously bears that designation out.

Overstreet 2019 VG 4.0 value = $1,886; FN 6.0 value = $2,829. CGC census 11/19: 2 in 5.0, none higher. From the Sun City Collection, an Original Owner Collection from El Paso, Texas.
