New Week, New Covers!!

 CRIME DOES NOT PAY #43

CRIME DOES NOT PAY #43

(Lev Gleason)

Crime comics in general seem overlooked right now with a few exceptions.  This is one of those exceptions and a top 5 Crime Cover.  Time will tell if Crime does in fact pay, as I really do believe it is the next genre to explode as folks realize just how rich the material is.

17 Universal Copies on the CGC census with a rather impressive average of 6.92.  Highest is a single 9.4 with a single 3.5 bottoming out the chart.

SHELF DATE of January 1946

 

 

 WORLDS OF FEAR #10

WORLDS OF FEAR #10

(Fawcett)

This is the last issue in a strong run of covers.  Not sure what it is about this one but Norman Saunders art for this cover breaks my mind.  I honestly can not decide if this is a must have issue, or a never want to own that book situation…   For those braver than I, there are a couple very low grade copies on ebay for a little over 100 bucks.

Only 9 examples on the CGC census, a single 9.2 at the top and a 3.0 at the bottom.  Average on the 9 comes out to a little better than 6.0

SHELF DATE of June 1953

As always, thanks for looking, folks!
