    Description

    Showcase #17 Adventures on Other Worlds (Adam Strange) (DC, 1958) CGC FN 6.0 Cream to off-white pages. Looking very much like a cover from Strange Adventures or Mystery In Space, where Gil Kane had been honing his cover skills for nearly a decade, this one from Mr. Kane is one of the best of his numerous outer space scenes, here introducing Adam Strange to the world. Eventually, of course, Strange would become the main attraction in Mystery In Space, following his three issue tryout here. The black-of-space background makes this issue a challenge to find in even this modest (thought nice!) grade. CGC has certified just one copy of issue #17 in a grade higher than 7.0, so with this one, you could own one of the nicer copies around. Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $549.
