Kirby & Simon cvr/art; origin & 1st app. Captain America, Bucky, & Red Skull; classic Hitler cover! (3/41)
We've said it before, but it bears repeating that the popularity of characters such as Captain America and the willingness of comic writers and artists to confront the Axis threat went a long way toward mobilizing a heretofore isolationist American populace in the long, dark days of the late 30s and early 40s. While many other art forms desperately avoided or ignored the ugly truth of Europe's rapid slide into fascism and Nazism in an obvious attempt to protect their own financial interests overseas, the almost entirely US-based comics business, staffed and developed largely by fugitives from those same wartime horrors, boldly waved the flag of freedom, most notably in this instant classic. Readers immediately fell in love with this gutsy, gleefully aggressive new hero, who wore his allegiance on his sleeve (well, his forehead, at any rate) and made his intent powerfully clear by taking aim directly at the mustachioed puss of the Fuhrer himself. In those pre-Pearl Harbor days, such an image was simply incendiary, and copies flew off shelves almost immediately, leading to a 78-year run as the preeminent symbol of American heroism.

Captain America #1 made a bold statement back when it was first published in 1941. The brilliant colors of this copy highlight the early Kirby mayhem of the scene as Cap shows the world that there's nothing more American than punching Nazis.

Overstreet Guide 2018 G+ (2.5) value = $30,000

Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson cvr/art; 1st (and only) GA Scarecrow cvr
The Golden Age Scarecrow was created through a collaboration between Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson and the macabre villain only made two appearances before being shelved until his Silver Age revival. Detective Comics #73 features the second of these appearances and bears the distinction of being the only cover to feature the character in the era.

Bold, glowing reds and yellows serve as the perfect backdrop to the shady and sinister Scarecrow as he does battle with the Dynamic Duo. The corners are sharp and the centering and registration are immaculate, this is an extremely appealing copy that comes across as higher than its grade. This book will certainly be at the center of some heated bidding at auction.

1st issue; 1st Toro/Sub-Mariner by Everett
The Human Torch was created by writer-artist Carl Burgos He first appeared in Marvel Comics #1 (October 1939), published by Marvel's predecessor, Timely Comics. The "Human" Torch was actually an android created by a scientist. He possessed the ability to surround himself with fire and control flames. In his earliest appearances, he was portrayed as a science fiction monstrosity, but quickly became a hero. Along with Captain America and the Sub-Mariner, the Torch's off-and-on foe, he was one of Timely Comics' three signature characters. Like many superheroes, he fell into obscurity by the 1950s and Marvel recycled his name and powers into a new, unrelated Human Torch, a member of the Fantastic Four, in 1961 (who, among other things, was actually human). Unlike Captain America and the Sub-Mariner, the original Human Torch has had only a small presence in the post-1950s Marvel comic books and is closely associated with the Golden Age.

After the 1st issue of Red Raven, Timely Publications decided to change the name of the title to Human Torch (hence the slightly confusing #2 as #1 Torch numbering system). The Torch's sidekick Toro, along with The Falcon, The Fiery Mask, Mantor the Magician and Microman all make their 1st appearances in this issue. Great art by Human Torch creator Carl Burgos and Sub-Mariner creator Bill Everett grace the pages of this premiere issue. As an added bonus, the origins of the Torch and Sub-Mariner are retold in text.

classic Schomburg Human Torch/Sub-Mariner WWII swastika/bondage cover (whew)
Marvel Mystery Comics was Timely's most iconic anthology book of the Golden Age, often featuring a classic Schomburg cover starring the Human Torch, Toro, and/or the Namor, Sub-Mariner, and issue #22 is no exception. The cover is typical of Schomburg, intense action in the foreground and all sorts of chaotic mayhem in the background, this image, showing Allied troops floundering around in the sea is reminiscent of the film Dunkirk, with the additonal thrill of a superhero melee. Toss in a back-pages Kirby yarn featuring the GA Vision versus Khor, the Black Sorceror, and you have another classic comic from the wartime hero explosion.

Kirby WWII Nazi bondage/torture cover
Another entry in the Golden Age Axis-bashing theme, U.S.A. Comics #1 features a ferocious cover image as Kirby and Simon's Defender bounds to the rescue of a soldier held in bondage by a Nazi witch and her evil lackeys. This early Jack Kirby masterwork of illustration presents the best of what war-era comic books had to offer; a costumed hero, bristling with muscles, rushing onward into the fray against the sinister forces of evil. It seems fairly obvious that the Defender was an early incarnation of an idea that would soon become the legendary Captain America. Essentially a testing ground for new concepts and characters until the appearance of Captain America in issue #6, this classic inaugural book of yet another hard to find title is sure to excite the growing fan base for WWII Timely titles, whose rarity and desirability only increase over time.

A pastiche of pastel colors adorn the cover of this FN/VF book, the chromatics show no sign of the years as they are still bright and clear. Tight binding, lovely centering and clean registration make this copy a real winner. The classic Jack Kirby illustration reveals an artist that is still learning his craft, but the seeds of his later domination of the medium are obvious. Golden Age Kirby covers are among the most valuable of the period, and this beloved illustration is a definite fan favorite.

Overstreet Guide 2018 F/VF (7.0) value = $5,000.
