classic L.B. Cole devil cover
Promise Collection
Highest Graded
The main attraction of this comic is, without question, the incredible L.B. Cole cover featuring the Devil drowning a group of gangsters in piles of money. This classic image has inspired collectors eager to track down a copy. The stories inside, however, also distinguish this 1946 comic as a true Golden Age artifact. The mystery tale with the Grey Mask features the hero's pioneering Black sidekick Dove, who'd eventually get co-billing on the title. There's more cultural significance with a comedic detective yarn with female protagonist Sherry Flippe. Each story was penned by the prolific Jack Crooks, with the book's Golden Age artists including Rudy Palais and George H. Appel.

Boasting the typically bold "poster color" style incorporated by L.B. Cole on his most recognizable covers, this copy of Suspense Comics #11 is a wonderful example of the power and artistry that was on display during the wild and wooly days of the Golden Age. This standalone highest-graded copy, hailing from the Promise Collection, is incredibly fresh looking and sturdy, presenting a bright palette of greens, reds, and yellows, a stiff spine, and overall solid construction. This survivor of the Golden Age has remained in amazing condition which is sure to make this book a major target come auction time.
