Grade:
CGC FN+: 6.5
In an homage to the first issue of Detective Comics, this yellow peril cover expands on the evocative imagery on that famous book. The early, pre-Batman Detective Comics were a powerhouse in the overstuffed world of the crime anthology comic. Introducing some of the more-popular stars of the pre-superhero era: Speed Saunders, Larry Steele, Cosmo, the Phantom of Disguise, and Slam Bradley ruled the roost before caped crusaders crashed the party. The Creig Flessel cover design hints at the guilty pleasures contained in this comic, and dares viewers to open the pages and discover just what jewels are contained in this mysterious book.
