AMAZING MYSTERY FUNNIES Volume 2 #5
Publisher:
Centaur
Grade:
CGC VF/NM: 9.0
One of the rarest of Everett Golden Age covers, and among his finest, the sci-fi/fantasy imagery on this cover prefigures the shlocky B-movies of the 1950s, with their buxom femme fatales and outlandishly attired warriors. Paying homage to comic book's pulp roots, this busy and memorable cover piece is a cult favorite of fans of the obscure and wonderful gifts the GA has to offer. Larson copy. Did we mention this is the Larson copy? And btw, this copy: Larson. As in Lamont Larson


Tied for second-highest graded on the census, this book is truly beautiful to behold, the colors are saturated, deep reds, gauzy pinks, perfectly shadowed flesh tones, this comic from the Larson pedigree is a showstopper. Fans of Golden Age books are sure to have this fresh, clean copy on their wish list.

Overstreet Guide 2018 VF/NM (9.0) value = $5,577.
