CGC NM+: 9.6
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 Ira Schapp / Murphy Anderson chessboard cover has become an instant classic that has been parodied, swiped, and copied repeatedly in the fifty years since publication. The fine detail of the small characters on the chess board, as well as the interesting perspective, showcase the impeccable craft of DC's crackerjack artist stable.
