    Justice League of America #1 Don/Maggie Thompson Collection pedigree (DC, 1960) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. It's hard finding a copy of this DC "key" in higher grades, so this one definitely got our attention. The sensational Murphy Anderson cover is the perfect prelude to the premiere issue of the title which features the origin and first appearance of Despero, who dares to match wits with the likes of Aquaman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, J'onn J'onzz, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Please! His name should be Desperate-o! Mike Sekowsky contributed interior art. Overstreet 2013 VF 8.0 value = $4,400. CGC census 11/13: 24 in 7.5, 30 higher. From the Don and Maggie Thompson Collection.
