DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
white pages; QES certified - criteria met: preferred staple placement + exceptional staple area + perfect spine + perfect cover edges; second highest graded 1 of 1!
origin & 1st app. Justice Society of America; truly iconic cover, one of the milestones of the Golden Age
Kentucky Collection
Featuring the origin and first appearance of the Justice Society of America, All Star Comics #3 is regarded as one of the most-important comics of all time. The issue ushered in the concept of superhero teams that would eventually give rise to the Justice League, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Avengers. The book's classic cover by E.E. Hibbard showcases a team roster which includes the Atom, Sandman, Spectre, Flash, Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Green Lantern, and Hour Man.
Standing alone as the second-best example of this book on the CGC census, this exemplary copy depicts the first appearance of the Justice Society of America in all their glory. The colors beam with only the slightest hint of age, which is quite a notable feat for a comic with an 80-year vintage. Considering everything that could have transpired in that time, this book is practically a superhero unto itself. The QES sticker further quantifies this example of All Star #3 as a comic that will be the subject of heavyweight bidding as we expect to see a record set.

Overstreet Guide 2020 NM- (9.2) value = $142,000.
