One of my newest addition to the heap. A file copy of an extremely rare comic. MEET THE NEW POST GAZETTE SUNDAY FUNNIES

This comic was included as an insert for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette Sunday newspaper on Sunday, March 20th in 1949. This was the only day that this comic was distributed and was used by the newspaper to promote its new "Sunday Funnies" section of their Sunday newspaper beginning the following week. This comic is so exceptionally rare that only about 20 copies are known to exist and probably the only one in such splendid condition. In fact, the Overstreet Guide only lists the value of this comic up to VF condition because there weren't any copies known to exist in better condition. This copy is in such remarkable condition because it comes straight from the file copies and private collection of the man who published it, Malcolm Ater, President of Commercial Comics

This exceedingly rare comic features all of the great comic strips from the 1940's "Golden Era" of comics, when every newspaper was beginning to include its own comic section. The sample art used in this book was done specifically by the creators of each strip for use in this particular initial publication, including:

Dick Tracy by Chester Gould,
The Berrys by Carl Grubert,
Gasoline Alley by King,
Terry and the Pirates by George Wunder,
Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy by Bob Schoenke,
Archie by Bob Montana,
Brenda Starr by Dale Messick,
Buck Rogers by Rick Yager,
The Gumps by Gus Edson,
Jack and Judy in Bibleland by William E. Fay,
Peter Rabbit by Vincent Fago,
Funnyman by Siegel and Shuster,
The Saint by Mike Roy, Even Superman

This extraordinary comic still has bright colors and supple pages and is in near-perfect condition. I think the highest graded are 2@9.0. As it sits it looks 9.0, but after a press and clean by me, I'm hoping for more than a 9.0. Fingers crossed for 9.2 or up.
Here are a few pics.

I also added two copies of this HTF book. Both in stellar shape.

@CatmanAmerica @earthshaker01 Thanks guys, much appreciated.
There is a copy of Prize Comics 20 in this weeks HA auction, but VERY low grade WITH brittle pages. With that combo, I'm out, but given how notoriously tough the book is it will be interesting to see where the bidding will end up despite the negatives .

I tried looking up some info on the artist Graham Place with no luck. I guess he vanished into obscurity...

I've often wondered about the identity of the gorgeous bound woman being rescued by the Torch on the cover of Marvel Mystery #7. This may simply have been Alex Schomburg's idea, but her elaborate costume, it does seem that she's a bit more than the typical distressed damsel in dire need of rescue. Who knows, maybe she was conceived as a continuing character that ended up being shelved at the last minute.
