    Description

    Adventure Comics #247 (DC, 1958) CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages. This is one of Overstreet's Top 20 Silver Age books thanks to the strong fan following of the Legion of Super-Heroes, which makes its first appearance here -- specifically founding members Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lighting Boy (later Lightning Lad). Originally conceived as throwaway characters for a single story, their surprise popularity turned them into DCU mainstays. This book is difficult to find in grades above Fine/Very Fine 7.0. Cover by Curt Swan. Green Arrow and Aquaman backup features. Overstreet 2012 VF 8.0 value = $5,200. CGC census 2/13: 1 in 8.0, 7 higher.
