LIBERTY SCOUTS #2
Publisher:
Centaur
Grade:
CGC VG-: 3.5
Liberty Scouts #2 has the same cover art, except for the logo, as Centaur's one-off Liberty Guards, which was, in essence, the first issue in this series, but the interiors of the two books have completely different content. Wartime covers that involve invasions of the United States by Axis forces are a rare breed, the motif was only used a handful of times, perhaps artists or editors were concerned that the images would prove too disturbing for the comic book buying public. But, in retrospect, this sub-genre of war covers are some of the most interesting of the era, acting as a warning that America cannot sit by the sidelines forever, lest the horrors occurring overseas end up in our own backyard.

This restored copy is one of only five copies on the census, a testament to the rarity of this comic, the cover retains its colors, although slightly faded and careworn, this classic stateside wartime cover is incredibly difficult to find in any condition, and should be a real magnet for fans of Golden Age esoterica.
