    Justice League of America #1 (DC, 1960) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. This #1 issue is currently 13th in Overstreet's ranking of the most valuable Silver Age comics, and our offering is tied for the highest grade yet assigned! You'll notice that #1 doesn't appear on the cover anywhere -- this comic is from the time when a #1 was considered a negative, even for tried-and-true characters like the JLA, who had had a successful debut in the pages of The Brave and The Bold. Murphy Anderson's cover image is one of the more famous covers of the Silver Age, and the story is by the creative team that produced every early JLA appearance: writer Gardner Fox and artist Mike Sekowsky. The issue is also notable for having the first appearance of three-eyed villain Despero. With the JLA still appearing in comics and cartoons to this day, demand for this key book can only increase. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $8,000. CGC census 9/05: 2 in 9.4, one higher.
