Classic Cover of the Week 5/6/2018

New Week, New Covers!!

 

VENUS #17

One in a long line of fantastic Bill Everett covers, this one comes from the Venus series.  Though this started as a romance comic, it switched over to a horror comic to grab attention during the early 50s new trend scene.

44 Universal copies of this comic on the CGC census with an average grade of 5.11.  3 8.5s are tied for the top spot with a lone 1.8 at the bottom.
SHELF DATE of December 1951

 

 

 

 

 

 

EXCITING COMICS #62

Schomburg paints at it’s finest.  Sometimes overlooked, though as more eyes catch these late issue Exciting books, the price should see a gain.  Watching one end in auction on Ebay as I type this, with 1 other slab sitting in buy it now for 500.00 for a 5.0.  Might prove to be a bargain if this issue catches on.

29 Universal copies on the census, 9.6 at the top(assume a pedigree copy) and a 4.0 on the bottom of the scale.  Averaging out at 7.34, it seems attractive copies are still out there.

SHELF DATE of July 1948

As always, thanks for looking, folks!
