Classic Cover of the Week 8/26/2018
New Week, New Covers!!
Web of Mystery #17
Lou Cameron Witch cover that has been gaining more attention over the last couple of years. An amazing cover, my only complaint, is the same as the rest of the run, too much space is taken up by the header/title.
A single 9.2 at the top of the CGC census, with a single 1.8 at the bottom, average grade comes out to 5.44 for the 9 copies graded, all of which are Universal.
SHELF DATE of February 1953
Startling Comics #49
From issue 44 through the end(issue 53) this run is a veritable greatest hits of classic Good Girl covers. This is easily the greatest of the run and arguably the top Good Girl cover in comics, the top Schomburg work as well as the top Sci Fi cover, if it were't for the incredible Frazetta run on Famous Funnies.
94 (Yes ninety four) Universal copies on the census, with 4 9.6's at the top, one of them being the Church/Denver/Mile High copy. The bottom place is held by a lone 1.0.
SHELF DATE of January 1948
