    Description

    Adventure Comics #247 (DC, 1958) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. We have not seen a higher-graded copy of issue #247 since 2011, so hesitation is your enemy when it comes to bidding on this Silver Age treasure. This is, of course, the first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes -- Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lighting Boy (Lad) are introduced as well. 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. Curt Swan did the cover featuring Superboy. Green Arrow and Aquaman get backup features in this book that is currently the #14 comic on Overstreet's list of Top 50 Silver Age Comics. Overstreet 2019 VF 8.0 value = $9,150. CGC census 3/20: 2 in 8.0, 9 higher.
