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 in the bondage of 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 trial balloon 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.

Spacehawks by Wolverton (1st comic work); Eisner, Cole, Kane art (6/38)
Highest Graded
Like many of comics' earliest artists, Basil Wolverton started out as a cartoonist, aiming for the funny pages of the daily papers, failing to find a home for his unique, surrealistic voice in the increasingly staid comic strip marketplace. His brief stint as a young vaudeville performer, and his eye for grotesquerie, resulted in a googly-eyed, manic, almost psychedelic style, decades ahead of its time. Luckily, the early comic book market was hungry for young talent that could produce stand-out material quickly and cheaply, and like many of the art form's pioneer, Wolverton got his break aping the comic strip fashions of the day for low-budget publishers, as in this incredibly rare entry from the tiny Globe Publishing company. The busy, harried cover belies the historical contents, as not only Wolverton, but future titans Will Eisner, Jack Cole, and Bob "Batman" Kane also get their early efforts published in this giant slab of early comics goodness. Serious Golden Age hounds know that historic documents like these are the "caviar" books of comic collecting, insanely rare and incredibly important.
