Rare Comic: Real Clue Crime! LOT OF 1 VINTAGE COMIC BOOK: REAL CLUE CRIME STORIES Vol. 6 #6, CGC 5.0 With Exceptional Off-White To White Pages; Released In 1951 As The August Issue From Hillman Periodicals. This Has One Of The Best Covers Of The Series, With The Jailbird Making His Escape From Incarceration, But You Don't Often See Decent Copies, As Evidenced By The Fact That This Is The SINGLE HIGHEST GRADED COPY! Additionally, No Other CGC-Graded Copies Have Surfaced In The Marketplace, In Over Twenty Years!
Hillman Was A Small Publisher That Had The Wisdom To Combine The Lurid Elements Of Both, The Gritty True Crime Market And The Burgeoning Horror Genre, Along With Other Infamous Titles Of The Period That Also Successfully Blended These Ever-Popular Themes, Such As Fight Against Crime, Crime Mysteries, Shocking Mystery Cases, Shock SuspenStories, And Startling Terror Tales. Keep In Mind That All Of Those Popular Titles Have Greater Numbers On The CGC Census Than This Genuine Rarity Of The Hobby. And With The Iconic Close-Up Cover By John Prentice With The Felon Removing The Bars From His Cell And About To Make His Hasty Exit From Custody, Just As The Guard Catches Him, It Makes For A Great Conversation Piece.
He Pre-Code Horror And Crime Craze Was In Full Swing, So Expect To See Criminals Treating Police Contemptuously And Explicit Content Including Gore And/Or Cheesecake, Extreme Violence, Good Girl Art And Other Classic Elements Of The Gruesome Comics From Before The Advent Of The Comics Code Authority, Which Is Sure To Have Perpetual Appeal. THIS HAD AN ORIGINAL PRICE OF TEN CENTS. The Horror, Crime, Pulp Fiction, Cops & Robbers, And Supernatural Themes Never Go Out Of Style! This hails from a cool, dry, smoke-free, climate-controlled environment. See the various pictures, but note most of them give it a washed-out appearance although it looks bold and striking in person.
It still retains an amazing amount of luster and it looks impressive for the assigned grade. Crucial issue for any pre-code crime collector or classic cover fiend or collector of exceptional rare golden-age comics.
