HUMAN TORCH, THE (1940-54) #15
CGC NM: 9.4
Human Torch #15 is graced with one of a seemingly endless run of amazing Alex Schomburg covers. This particular issue shows the Torch attempting to rescue an extinguished Toro from a bath of molten metal, while a horde of robed evildoers scampers about in an attempt to thwart his efforts. The stories inside the pages are the sort of gruesome fare that dominated the WWII era, Torch and Toro get their fires put out often and many casualties are racked up, poison, explosions, stampedes, deadly falls, and other pre-code mayhem ensues, all rendered by the talented draftsmen Al Gabriele, Harry Sahle, and Allen Simon.

This copy of Human Torch #15 comes from the Okajima pedigree and is tied for highest graded. Save for some writing on the cover, there are no imperfections visible, the spine is perfect, the colors are vibrant, the corners are keen and the registration is magnificent. You are not likely to come across another example of this classic issue in such amazing condition again, fans of Golden Age Timelys, Alex Schomburg art or the Human Torch, take notice, this is one comic you don't want to let slip away.
