PLANET COMICS 1940-54 #2
CGC NM: 9.4
Featuring one in a long run of excellent, racy and thrilling covers, this second issue of Planet Comics picks up where the first left off. The art inside the book is a cut above the standard Golden Age fare, as are the storylines, which show the amazing distillation of the sci-fi genre from Victorian novels into small, digestable chunks, influenced heavily by the pulps that ruled the roost before comics took over the newsstands. Planet Payson, Flint Baker, Tiger Hart, and Spurt Hammond all get in on the action in this GA classic!
Being that this is the highest graded copy on the census, and it hails from the vaunted Mile High pedigree, there is not much more to say than it is a beautiful, bright, clean, nearly perfect Golden Age comic book. It goes without saying that any book from the Edgar Church collection is not only going to go up in value, but will also be the subject of intense competition, as will every book in the Planet run in this auction.
Overstreet Guide 2018 NM- (9.2) value = $11,500.
