PLANET COMICS 1940-54 #7
CGC NM+: 9.6
Its fitting that Bob Powell cut his teeth on Planet Comics, the first exclusively sci-fi title in comics, as the talented artist later went on to create the pencils for the beloved and iconic "Mars Attacks" card series that inspired the movie by the same name. Here we can see Powell's formidable skills as he creates a thrilling cover scene of space action. Inside the book's pages The Red Comet, Captain Nelson Cole, and Auro, Lord of Jupiter all make appearances in this classic Golden Age sci-fi romp.
The cover on this higest graded example is simply beautiful, considering its seventy eight-year age, it seems to have been kept in suspended animation, the bright yellow background contrasts perfectly with strong reds of the logo. Hailing from the Mile High pedigree this book will go for prices above the Overstreet estimate, owning any book from the Church collection is a dream only a few can claim to have made a reality.
Overstreet Guide 2018 NM- (9.2) value = $4,500.
