    Green Lantern #79 (DC, 1970) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages. The toughest issue to find in high grade of the Denny O'Neil/Neal Adams run! Yes, we do know that the first issue, #76, has just one 9.6 on the census to date but note that in addition to no 9.8 and only two 9.6 copies, a paltry six copies of #79 have even made it to 9.4, the least of any book in the 76-89 span! We point to the black cover (dare we say "in blackest night?") as the main culprit here. Of course none of the above would mean much except for the fact that this run is hotly sought after right now, with record prices seemingly broken each time a top copy comes up for sale. Adams is the cover artist, natch. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $135. CGC census 4/09: 2 in 9.6, none higher. From the Capital City Collection.
