Kind of beat, yellowing paper, and front cover is detached. Still this Clayton Pulp sold for close to $30.00.
ALL STAR DETECTIVE – May 1942 recently sold for $114.38
Second and Last Issue, although it says issue 3. NOT the same series as the above Clayton title, but a Manvis Publications, Inc./Red Star/Tmely-Marvel Comics/Martin Goodman Pulp.
“The cover is a Peter Driben homage to – or just ripoff of – H. J. Ward.
This was the Library of Congress copyright deposit file copy, and obviously everyone at the LoC had to stamp it to make it official. (I count at last 6 – DLS)
Condition: Front cover: Light edge wear and edge tears, LoC ink stamps, creases along the right edge, partially erased pencil markings near top right corner, separation from spine for the top inch-and-a-half or so.
Pages: Tan, a little darker around the edges, clean. A few of the pages that stick out the farthest have some very minor edge flaking, but the pages overall are still flexible.”
