HORRIFIC #3

(Comic Media)

Classic BULLET TO THE HEAD cover by Don Heck (Co-Creator of Iron Man, Mandarin, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Mantis, just to name a few).  Incredibly difficult to find above a VG, most PCH collectors lucky enough to find this issue have tucked it away into their PC for the foreseeable future.

20 Universal copies on the CGC census with an average grade of 4.88.  Should be noted that there are 5 examples above a 6.0, 2 of which are 6.5 and the top grade being a single 9.0.

SHELF DATE of January 1953

PEP COMICS #22

(MLJ Magazines)

Great Irv Novick cover depicting The Shield holding back the spiked show of the Axis Powers(Showing the Japanese flag and the Swastika on the heel).  Also happens to be the first appearance of Archie Andrews, Betty and Jughead.  Obviously a mega Golden Age Key at this point, even incomplete copies bring big money.

10 Universal copies on the census(not a typo…TEN…) with an average grade of 4.45, the highest being a single 8.0.  Needless to say this book is near impossible to find.

SHELF DATE of December 1941

As always, thanks for looking, folks!
