DESCRIPTION
off white pgs
Shuster art; Siegel script; Flessel cover/art. RARE (8/37)
Billy Wright copy
Early Detective Comics are rare, and they are brutal, filled with the kind of pulp tales that defined the term, the stories are straight and to the point. This issue opens with the tale of a mad scientist who places a human brain in a gorilla's head for no particular reason, the ensuing rampage is doubtless the inspiration for the moody Creig Flessel cover art on this classic. The anthology insanity continues through out the book, stuffed to the brim with the pre-Batman tales that defined the fledgeling series. Speed Saunders, Larry Steele, Cosmo, the Phantom of Disguise, Bruce Nelson and Slam Bradley all make appearances, just to name a few.



Overstreet Guide 2017 VG/F (5.0) value = $3,375.
