This issue features the first appearance of not one, not two, but three major superheroes of the DC Universe. Both Green Arrow and his sidekick Speedy, as well as Aquaman, make their comic book debuts in More Fun #73. Inspired by Robin Hood and a movie serial hero called the Green Archer, Green Arrow was created by the team of Mort Weisinger and George Papp. The character later gained new life as a wisecracking political crusader in the 60s. Today, Arrow has his own hit television show, which has recently concluded its 8th and final season. The Aquaman franchise has also enjoyed a great deal of success due to DC's "Justice League" film and his own self-titled feature. As a result, there's no slowing in demand for this investment collectible.


A genuine classic key that exists in just over fifty copies noted on the census, the combination of the introduction of three important characters in DC’s history, plus The Spectre, and Dr. Fate gives this issue a ton of firepower, which always makes for a heavyweight bout at auction. This book has undergone a moderate amount of professional restoration to replenish its appearance and stability, and it has definitely paid off, as the book is in impressive condition, once shunned, restored books have become accepted by collectors, as original condition copies are very hard to come by, disappearing into collections for years.

Overstreet Guide 2020 F/VF (7.0) value = $57.950.
