Plastic Man smuggles opium! 2nd Plastic Man/2nd Phantom Lady (9/41)
Edgar Church / Mile High Copy
Highest Graded
POLICE COMICS (1941-53) #2
CGC NM: 9.4
Police Comics #2 is stuffed to the gills with crime stories, the featured cover hero, The Firebrand, stars in a beautifully rendered Reed Crandall tale, but there is no denying the power of the Plastic Man story in the middle of this overstuffed comic. Plastic Man would soon come to dominate this title, and for good reason, in his second ever appearance Plas smuggles opium into the states inside the body of a corpse, beats up a gang of opium dealers and kills an adversary by bouncing his bullets back at him, not to mention masquerading as a junkie and maneuvering through a tiny keyhole. Its no wonder that this shape-changing hero captivated the imaginations of readers of the time, some characters are just on the fast track to success, easily distinguishing themselves from the glut of nondescript heroes of the Golden Age.

Save for some light tanning to the cover, this comic is in unbelievable condition, sharp corners, bright colors and with white pages, you will not find another example like this Edgar Church/MIle High copy, which sits alone at the top of the census. For Golden Age crime fans and Plastic Man fans alike, this book is sure to see some fevered bidding.
