New Week, New Covers!!

 NEW TRIUMPH #772

NEW TRIUMPH #772

Alright, not really a comic book, but this is the first appearance of Superman outside of the US.  Released in Great Britain with all new original art and story, Superman was featured in the weekly paper for a short time before the title itself went out of print.  This was most likely due to paper shortage and conservation created by World War II.
SHELF DATE of August 5th 1939

MYSTIC COMICS #8

(Timely)

Nazi Demon Iron Maiden cover by Al Gabriele.  Can't ask for much more.  It being a Timely makes this a bit tougher to get a hold of but there are some copies out there.

21 Universal copies on the CGC census with a single 9.6 at the top and a single 1.5 at the bottom of the charts.  Average grade comes out to 6.59.

SHELF DATE of January 1942

As always, thanks for looking, folks!
