    Adventure Comics #247 (DC, 1958) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. The first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes (Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lighting Boy) is always in ultra-high demand, and in the last six years we have only sold two CGC-graded copies that have topped this offering (an 8.0 and a 9.0) -- that should tell you how uncommon this book is in high-grade! In addition to the Legion story, Green Arrow and Aquaman star in backup features. Curt Swan did the now-famous cover. Al Plastino, George Papp, and Ramona Fradon also supply art inside. Overstreet 2013 FN 6.0 value = $1,725; VF 8.0 value = $5,500. CGC census 2/14: 15 in 7.0, 15 higher.
