Everett art
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.

Leo O'Mealia cvr/art; 2nd app. of Superman
The Jon Berk Collection
Superman wasn't a sure thing. So uncertain were DC Comics (then National Periodicals) that the second issue in the Action series, prepared before the initial issue hit the stands, didn't even feature the Man of Steel on its cover. As a result, Action #2 is arguably even scarcer than the first, the number of copies on the CGC census are less than half that of the mighty Action #1. This comic, which was once considered a throwaway, worth only pocket change of the era, and intended to pass time for only a moment, has been preserved through the passage of many decades.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st costumes & established HQ
The Jon Berk Collection
This is not the first issue of the Fantastic Four, but it is an issue filled to the brim with firsts. This issue marks the first appearance of the FF's costumes, which can turn invisible, stretch to incredible lengths, resist powerful flames, and allow Ben Grimm a relaxing day at the beach. This issue also debuts the location of the super-team's headquarters, the design of their Fantasti-car, and even features the first time Stan Lee refers to the series as "The Greatest Comic Magazine in the World". Notably, this issue is also the first to feature an FF fan mail section, the first step in Lee's creation of the Mighty Marvel Fan Base. The vintage Jack Kirby cover design uses the sharp, stark grays of the New York City skyline to highlight the bright reds of Johnny Blaze's flames and the pristine white of the brand new Fantasti-car.

1st Green Hornet & Kato/1st Black Beauty
The Jon Berk Collection
The Green Hornet was created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker in the 1930s as a radio show on WXYZ in Detroit, Michigan. Brit Reid, the Green Hornet, is actually the nephew of the Lone Ranger, also created by Striker. Crime-fighting runs in the blood! The Green Hornet has appeared on radio, serials, a TV series with Van Williams and the legendary Bruce Lee as his faithful valet, Kato, and many comic books series of which this comic is the first. The cover sports a beautifully painted image of Green Hornet and Kato in their famed vehicle, the Black Beauty! The cover is thought to have been painted by classic pulp artist H.J. Ward.
