    Adventure Comics #247 (DC, 1958) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. In all of our years of comic auctions, we have only seen one higher graded copy of issue #247 -- just a VF/NM 9.0, and that was eight years ago! This is the first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes -- Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lighting Boy (Lad). Curt Swan did the cover, featuring Superboy. Green Arrow and Aquaman each have backup features in the issue. Currently this is the #15 book on Overstreet's list of Top 50 Silver Age Comics. Overstreet 2018 VF 8.0 value = $8,500; VF/NM 9.0 value = $17,750. CGC census 2/19: 4 in 8.5, 5 higher.
