    Doc Savage - March 1933 (#1) (Street & Smith) Condition: VG/FN. The historic debut issue of the iconic hero pulp series, featuring a classic Walter Baumhofer cover.
    Created by Street & Smith Publications to further capitalize on the success of their other pulp hero, The Shadow, Doc Savage quickly became popular with readers -- so much so that decades later his 182 adventures were reprinted as paperbacks by Bantam over the course of 25 years and continue to entertain readers.
    Bookery's lists this issue as "uncommon to scarce", and this stunning copy is arguably the nicest of the five copies we've seen to date, and one of only three unrestored copies we've encountered. A must-have pulp. A very nice copy, with a small amount of dried glue on cover. Bookery's Guide to Pulps Second Edition VG value = $10,000.
