LITTLE GIANT COMICS #4
Publisher:
Centaur
Grade:
CGC FN: 6.0
Centaur Comics was one of the earliest and quirkiest publishers to compete in the comic book boom of the late 30s. Publishing titles like Detective Eye, Western Picture Stories, Star Ranger Funnies and Amazing Man Comics, the imprint covered all of the bases, dipping into every genre under the sun. This oddball comic, Little Giant Comics was one of the anthology books that flooded the marketplace in those early, anything goes days of comics, when the American Dream was being lived one dime at a time. Kids were snapping up funny books in droves, and ambitious businessmen were more than happy to supply issues of all shapes and sizes, these truly were the "Wild West" days of the industry.

With its (unsurprisingly) raucous hockey cover, is not only the highest on the census, but one of only two CGC has ever laid hands on, which attests to its extreme scarcity, it may be the rarest Centaur, and, well, that's saying a lot. The colors on this book still pack a punch, and hailing from the Larson pedigree gives this book added elements of prestige and provenance.
