Here's another hard-to-find issue, New Adventure #29:



It's funny, the Flessel covers for pre-Batman Detective Comics are widely known as classics and are in heavy demand. Yet I believe his work on the pre-Sandman Adventure Comics is equally impressive, maybe even more exciting due to the broad range of subject matter (Flessel stuck to the "Detective" vs. "Adventure" themes very nicely). But for some reason, these early Adventures don't sell for the same premiums as the early Detectives.

I think they're a good bit scarcer, which is part of the problem. People don't even know of them except as a vague run.

If I could have a full run of any title from any publisher, not considering the monetary value of having full Action or Detective runs, I'd take New/ New Adventure/ Adventure Comics. Even without the precursor titles, I'd probably still choose Adventure. Great covers and great variety in the contents. Even during the mediocre years of the late 70s to early 80s, it kept up the variety because it was either an anthology or couldn't hold on to a feature -- then faded out with those nifty little digests that have a strange appeal. (Probably some people here don't count those as comic books.)
I'm enjoying the wonderful scans of high-grade copies!

Yep, I have to agree with you on that. It was a series on par with Detective and Action. Truly a sad day when the last issue hit the presses. To me, the best covers(Mostly Flessels) are those that reflect the name...Adventures. Though, #16 is kinda cool too.

Here's an obscure one more in keeping with the Ellsworth humor covers of New Comics 1-12, New Adventure #14:

I've never even seen a copy of NA #14 before. How hard is that to find compared to #13, which I think may be the toughest of them all?

I agree - Those GA Hourman/Starman/Sandman covers have a bygone era feel that Action and Detective can't quite match due to perenial popularity of Batman and Superman (Plus S&K covers!). The shear variety of cover features makes the title more interesting.

The reason Flessel pre-hero Adventures sell for less than his Detectives is because Batman never took over the title.
Collectors seek continuity, even if it's just on the logo.

Given that I have a New Adventure #14, I have a New Comics #2, and I have a bead on a New Adventure #26, but have no idea where to go about finding a NA #13....I'd say the #13 is just stupid rare.
