The Jon Berk Collection
Born of a merger between several moderately successful pulp and comic publishing houses, Centaur Publications was short-lived, lasting only the scant years of the major World War II comic book craze. But, in that time, some of the art form's finest illustrators passed through their scrappy lineup, including future Timely superstars and DC pioneers like Bill Everett, Fred Guardineer, and Basil Wolverton.

The flagship title of their lineup, Amazing Mystery Funnies, was an incubator for many of the ideas and archetypes that would come to define the Golden Age of comics. Sci-fi, action, westerns, jungle adventure, and other pulp derived yarns burst forth from its overstuffed pages. As Centaur fought for paper, printing presses, and newsstand space, print runs were low and distribution was spotty, making this title among the rarest of classic comic series, and thereby highly desirable to collectors of the historically significant and the extremely scarce.

RARE! classic Everett bondage cover; drug story
Bill Everett began his career in advertising, and bounced around the commercial art industry for a few years before landing his first job in comics over at Centaur Publishing, where his talents easily translated over to the burgeoning art form. His fluid designs and ability to create eye-catching covers immediately earned him a place in the history of the industry, going on to create Namor, the Sub-Mariner and Marvel's Daredevil later on in life. His skills are evident in this early cover design for Amazing Mystery Funnies v2 #2, all of the Golden Age tropes are in place, bondage, woman in peril, scary villain in bizarre costume, and weird gadgetry, all rendered with panache and assuredness, this is one of Everett's most-beloved covers from his days at Centaur.

This cover is in splendid condition considering its age, the four-color printing process is stretched to its limit on this memorable Everett design. Esoterica hounds take note, the rampant success of our recent Centaur auction proves that these gems are still a hot commodity, especially issues with such awesome covers in admirable shape.

Overstreet Guide 2018 F/VF (7.0) value = $1,213.

Larson Copy
One of the rarest of Everett Golden Age covers, and among his finest, the sci-fi/fantasy imagery on this cover prefigures the shlocky B-movies of the 1950s, with their buxom femme fatales and outlandishly attired warriors. Paying homage to comic book's pulp roots, this busy and memorable cover piece is a cult favorite of fans of the obscure and wonderful gifts the GA has to offer. Larson copy. Did we mention this is the Larson copy? And btw, this copy: Larson. As in Lamont Larson

Tied for second-highest graded on the census, this book is truly beautiful to behold, the colors are saturated, deep reds, gauzy pinks, perfectly shadowed flesh tones, this comic from the Larson pedigree is a showstopper. Fans of Golden Age books are sure to have this fresh, clean copy on their wish list.

1st app. & origin Daredevil by Everett; Kirby cover (4/64)
You can tell from the Spider-Man plug on the cover that Marvel had, by the time of this book's release, become known as a hero machine by pumping out high-gloss, high-energy heroes and heroines, which sold like hotcakes. In this case, the House of Ideas picked up a Biro hero name, which had been left to linger, dusted it off and added the enticing gimmick of making their Daredevil a blind lawyer, adding both modern intrigue and a great hook. It would take a while for the character to fully hit his stride, but the dynamic Kirby cover and ravishing Everett interiors attracted readers and established Daredevil as a unique and mature alternative to cosmic adventuring and teenage angst.

Electrifying yellows and reds dominate the VF/NM cover of this Silver Age key, the bright hues bound off the page just like Daredevil himself. With keen corners and solid binding, this is an appealing high-grade copy of an important origin issue that looms large in Marvel's history. It's fairly obvious that the Devil of Hell's Kitchen will rear his horned head again on TV or in the movies in years to come, so now is a prime time to pick up a copy of his first appearance.

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.

#3 (#2); Schomburg cvr; Everett art; 1st published app. of Capt. America (pre-dates Cap #1); Hitler app. (Winter 1940)
For Golden Age fans a book like this is a real find. When Carl Burgos created Prof. Phineas Horton's android The Human Torch, and Bill Everett swam the depths of his imagination to give us The Sub-Mariner, few could have guessed the impact they would have for generations to come. This issue features a 40 page Torch story, a Sub-Mariner tale, plus in a text piece the two characters debate who is the better artist: Burgos or Everett.

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.
