Edgar Church / Mile High Copy
Highest Graded
CGC NM/M: 9.8
From such humble beginnings grew a world-conquering comics powerhouse. Before Archie Comics, there was MLJ, who launched their line of hero titles in the heady pre-WWII glow of the super-comic craze, and brought to the market such quirky cult favorites as Steel Sterling, Zambini the Magician, The Web, and eventually Wilbur, in the pages of this high-energy, action-packed magazine. Even its embryonic state, the stable of MLJ heroes delighted young fans and made history. True historians of hero comics will revel in the naive, muscled splendor of these early action favorites.

This is an undeniably gorgeous book, part of the esteemed Edgar Church pedigree. Golden Age books simply aren't supposed to look like this -- when you see one that does, it takes the breath away. GA collectors are going to love this one. This 9.8 Mile High is the Highest graded copy in the world with the next best being only 9.0.
