1st Everett cover (8/38)
Larson Copy
CGC VF-: 7.5
The first issue of Amazing Mystery Funnies delivers the Golden Age anthology goods, offering a variety of comic book action tales ranging from yellow peril to western, and featuring the charming, crudely drawn stories created by the unsung artists who helped the industry find its footing in the earliest days of the comic book boom. The stunning Bill Everett cover is the icing on the cake, channeling the sci-fi pulps of the era, Everett creates an eye-catching graphic that was sure to attract attention in the local five-and-dime spinner racks.

This second-highest-graded copy (1 of 2) retains its strong hues, highlighting the classic cover illustration. Considering the rarity of this series in general, and this being the first issue of the run, this comic is sure to be a checklist book for fans of the early days of the comic book industry.
