I was out of town on a business trip earlier this month and had some time to kill so I stopped at a comic book store and came away with this unexpected surprise. Sad thing, though, is that it's missing the centerfold (but it did make it "affordable"). Anybody have a coverless copy they would like to sell?

At this time, Goodman was also publishing pulps under the Red Circle line. They had a couple of "weird menace" titles (Uncanny Tales and Mystery Tales). This cover takes after them with the monster, hero, fiendish villians in red robes and the girl in the torture device.

There's something special about those Timely's from their first year of publication.

Lol Just Kidding Anyway I doubt that my Human Torch 7 is up to forum standards but I have always thought Timely Human Torch covers are cool.

Here is one of the rarest Timely's from 1942. Overstreet lists it as "Rare". Joker Comics #1 is the only Joker issue to have a Superhero story in it, Stuporman. It's also the 1st appearance of Powerhouse Pepper by Wolverton! I'm going to scan the back cover too as it has Captain America on it!

This one is listed as SCARCE in Overstreet. Comedy Comics #9 was a continuation of Daring Mystery Comics #1-8. Only the first 3 issues of Comedy Comics have Superhero stories.

Here is a super tough book to get in VF or better. This 8.0 copy is the Highest Graded Copy that CGC has graded to date. Daring Mystery Comics #1-8 had ended years earlier and with issue #9, the title was changed to Daring Comics. I never figured out why the "Mystery" was dropped from the title?!?

Oh, BTW, it's a World War II Schomburg shark cover too!
