New York World's Fair 1940 Is On Auction At ComicConnect

New York World's Fair was a comic published by DC Comics in 1939 and 1940 at the World's Fair in New York for 15 cents. The most popular DC characters at the time had stories inside- Batman and Robin, Superman, Sandman, Slam Bradley, and Zatara all appeared between the covers, which featured no advertisements. A full 96 pages of story in there. Another interesting tidbit is that the cover for the 1940 issue with its yellow background is the first time Batman, Robin, and Superman all appeared on a cover together. Neat. A copy of this is a sought-after one for sure, and ComicConnect has one taking bids today. It is already at $667 as of this writing, so that tells you how rare this book is. Check it out below.
