JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (1960-87) #1
Publisher:
DC
Grade:
CGC VF: 8.0
After a short but successful run in The Brave and the Bold, the Justice League of America debuted in its very own title in 1960. The superhero team united the forces of some of DC's prime talent, including Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, and the Flash. This issue features the JLA fighting a losing battle against the hypnotic Despero only to be rescued by a simple hipster, Snapper Carr, who is impervious the to the crafty villain's powers. The memorable Murphy Anderson chessboard cover was an instant classic that has been parodied and copied repeatedly in the years since publication. The fine detail of this cover design showcases the impeccable craft of Anderson's crackerjack talents.


This VF copy of the first issue Justice League of America is in well-preserved condition, the colors are bright and clear, the binding is tight, and there is very little noticeable wear and tear. The registration on this iconic cover is immaculate, the tiny heroes on the chessboard read as well as their full-sized counterparts, a wonderful copy of an important key that is sure to be a hot item at auction.

Overstreet Guide 2018 VF (8.0) value = $7,200.
