The Question Is Always A Good Time, Charlton Comic Taking Bids Today

The Question is one of the most underutilized characters in comics, no matter which version you are discussing. My grandfather talked about Vic Sage so much that I thought he was a real person when I was younger, and I spent many an afternoon reading about Vic's adventures with him. He had a particular fondness for his early Steve Ditko appearances though, like this copy of Mysterious Suspense #1 from 1968, a CGC 8.5 taking bids at Heritage Auctions today. His copy was well read by the time I got my hands on it, and it would tickle him to know I was writing this today. This copy if the book is at $90 right now, and you can see it below.
