Two years into the war effort, Timely knew that it had history on its hands, as its patriotic marquee hero, Captain America, sold hundreds of thousands of copies of his solo book to voracious readers, and his stablemates the Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner equally racked up incredible sales numbers in both their own books and in Timely's flagship Marvel Mystery title. Not one to let a good craze go to waste, the anthology title All Select was hurriedly cobbled together, spinning yet more yarns from the groaning cabinet of inventory tales Timely was frantically commissioning from young and hungry artists eager to make their mark on the comic market. Boasting one of the most hyperactive and instantly classic of Schomburg's war covers, the book leaped off newsstands and sated the growing hunger for heroes battling the Axis. This terrific copy boasts rich blacks, strong reds, and a sturdy spine, and is one of the nicest we've seen. Timelys are red hot at every auction, and prices are rising rapidly -- this book is sure to attract attention.
