A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION ow pages classic Schomburg Holocaust cover (4/45)One of the toughest Caps to find, featuring one of the most graphic covers ever published, the jarring image on the front of this book depicts Nazis burning Jews alive in ovens. Many of the early comic creators were European Jews, and they knew what was happening to their families and friends overseas. They used the popular medium of comic books to spread the word about the Holocaust and make people aware of the atrocities that were taking place under Hitler’s regime during World War II.
Distinguished by an Alex Schomburg cover that depicted one of the first holocaust scenes in comics, readers relished in the stories "Invitation to Murder," in which Cap and Bucky investigate a possible killing involving the estate of a late millionaire, "The Five Traitors From Berlin," inked by the not-yet-famous Carmine Infantino, where a crime boss disguised as Captain America frames the super-hero for a crime spree, and two other stories, "The Mystery of the Puff Adder Skulls" and "The Case of the Forged Check!" Good; solid golden age fare that will always be both intriguing and valuable.
