A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION ow/white pages; Tied 2nd Highest Graded! Super Soldier Copy (COA)! Alex Schomburg WWII Japanese air battle, bondage cover Chicago CopyUSA Comics was a wartime anthology published by Timely, and like the majority of their output from the era, the book beat the patriotic drum for the boys overseas and the civilians on the homefront, quite possibly being the publisher’s most directly propagandistic of WWII titles. The addition of Captain America as the featured cover hero helped draw attention to the run which had lacked a sense of focus before the First Avenger’s involvement. Boasting such luminary contributors as Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Syd Shores, and Basil Wolverton, USA #8 features a typically incredible cover illustration by the legendary Alex Schomburg. Cap jumps onto the wing of a Japanese airplane to rescue the perpetually bound Bucky while dogfights rage on in the background, another wartime classic scene by the master of the form.
This exemplary copy of USA comics #8 hails from the Chicago Pedigree, as well as the Super Soldier Collection, the book is one of the two second-highest graded examples on the census, and there are only a scant 25 copies listed overall on the CGC boards. This is an extremely rare and incredibly well-preserved Golden Age treasure, the colors on the cover are amazingly bright, and the book is structurally sound, surviving the last eight decades in spectacular fashion. This lot is sure to be one of the sleeper attractions of EA #52 and will certainly be the subject of intense bidding.
