Captain Marvel Catches a Flight in Whiz Comics #7, up for Auction

Whiz Comics have been gaining steam on the aftermarket lately, and Captain Marvel is a big reason why. Snag this at Heritage Auctions today.

Captain Marvel, or Shazam, is having a bit of a moment in the aftermarket right now. For once, I do not think it is because of the film currently in theaters, it is just because interest in the golden age appearances is ramping up. In my shop, we have been selling Whiz Comics back issues at a brisker pace than we have in years. In fact, Whiz Comics #7 is a book we have sold three copies of in the last couple weeks. This raw copy, taking bids at Heritage Auctions today, is nicer than any of them. Right now, you can snag it for less than $40, and you know what we say: anytime you can grab anything golden age for less than $50, you do it. Check it out below.
