CAPTAIN MARVEL JR. (1942-53) #1
CGC NM+: 9.6
Mac Raboy's Captain Marvel Jr. took a spin-off from the original Captain Marvel and made it into something all its own. Raboy's realistic style gave this title depth and heft, and the stories in this series had a seriousness that contrasted with the more cartoony exploits of his mentor. The first issue of Captain Marvel Jr. retells the character's origin story, that of a young boy who is wounded in an attack by Captain Nazi which forces the original Captain Marvel to transfer some of his powers into young Freddy Freeman to save his life. The new addition to the Marvel Family remains a teenager in his transformed state and is still hobbled by a lame leg when he is in his human form. Although the character appeared in Whiz and Master Comics before earning his own title, this premiere issue proved that the junior version of the Marvel franchise could stand on its own.

Hailing from the legendary Mile High pedigree, this QES copy is the highest graded on the census, and it sure is one beautiful comic. The black background is flawless and the colors retain their punch after nearly eighty years. There are not many Golden Age comics that realize this grade, and this issue, featuring such an amazing cover, is truly a special book. Captain Marvel Jr. fans and Mac Raboy aficionados are surely waiting with bated breath to bid on this world-class copy.
