Schomburg Nazi WWII cover; Everett art
The Sub-Mariner not only bears the distinction of being Marvel's premiere superhero but was also the first character to battle Hitler's Axis forces on the cover of a comic book. Alex Schomburg's compelling Nazi-bashing illustration for this issue stands out as one of the finest examples of the wartime battle cover. Namor's creator, Bill Everett, said he came up with the character’s name after writing several "noble" words backward, Roman being one of them, hence the moniker Namor. The Sub-Mariner was featured in the very first issue that Timely Comics ever released, Marvel Comics #1, and went on to appear in many titles with his Golden Age compatriots, Human Torch, and Captain America.

One of the most desirable classic Timelys, featuring an iconic cover by Alex Schomburg, Sub-Mariner’s first solo title issue is a popular investment book for Golden Age fans. This mid-grade copy sits at the perfect spot between condition and price, making the book available to a larger pool of bidders than can usually compete at higher grades. Thanks to the MCU, Namor is back in the spotlight, and all key appearances by the Prince of Atlantis are in demand. Boasting strong colors, and nice, solid construction, this is sure to be on many bidder’s want lists, and, as such, will be the subject of feverish competition come auction time.

Overstreet Guide 2022 FN- (5.5) value = $16,500.
