Daring Mystery Comics #1
Timely Comics
Jan 1940
CGC NM 9.4 Off-White to White
Denver Pedigree

Serial #0048081001

Highest Certified by CGC! This milestone Timely hit the newsstands just three months after Marvel Comics #1, and well before first issues of better-known titles such as Human Torch Comics and Sub-Mariner Comics. The cover is quintessential Alex Schomburg -- bondage, hooded bad guys, and action galore. Joe Simon contributed interior art. The futuristic theme featured the Fiery Mask, a character whose origin and first appearance could be found inside. This brilliant Denver pedigree copy could have come from the "other" premier pedigree from Colorado -- it's that magnificent! The issue itself is rated as "Scarce" in Gerber's Photo-Journal Guide to Golden Age Comic Books, underscored by the total number of unrestored copies CGC has certified to date, a mere nine, and, no other copy has been graded nicer than FN 6.0 except this copy! 2009 Guide value for NM- 9.2 is $37,000. Certified NM 9.4 comics from Pedigreed collections such as this, generally sell for multiples of the 9.2 Guide value. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a stunning, Timely first issue from a pedigree collection!
