classic Baily Spectre cvr; 1st app. Dr. Fate; scarce
Nova Scotia Copy
CGC NM: 9.4
First, there is the cover, one of the classic run of Bailey Spectre covers, revered by Golden Age collectors and scholars as among the most evocative and memorable of all DC imagery. Then, there is the first appearance of Dr. Fate, whose introduction helped solidify DC's stable of mystical and moody characters, and without whose dark mystery and dramatic origin none of the Bronze Age's occult wizardry would have been possible. A legendary book suited for all serious collectors of the Golden Age.

While the Big Three GA keys have long gotten all the attention and excitement, aficionados know the real action is in books such as these, the super-rare treasures. These twilight, gloomy works have been cult classics amongst comic collectors for over twenty-five years, and are now finally taking their proper place alongside the Action #1s and Detective #27s. This copy, in amazing condition, comes from the Nova Scotia pedigree, a collection from Canada featuring unusually high-grade Golden Age material, long prized for their terrific page quality and wonderful color. This is a sterling example, with dark, rich blacks and bone-white pages. The cream of the crop, Spectre covers are among the pinnacle of Golden Age DC comics, and this sparkling copy is a prime example of the period.

Overstreet Guide 2016 NM- (9.2) value = $36,000.
