Yesterday we saw my latest semi-key monkey book.  Today, let's take a look at another.

Superman #127

The first appearance of Titano, from February 1959!

This copy I bought off of eBay about 4 or 5 years ago.  It looked great in the scan, so I was surprised that I was able to sneak in and snag it for under $50.  Especially knowing the fascination with monkeys, apes, and DC.

Initially, I thought the top edge might have been trimmed, as that upper right corner is just too sharp.  Once in hand though, it looks uncut.  There are a few tiny specks of color loss on the cover, but those might be printing defects.  And aside from a few tiny spine nicks and the slightly abraded lower left corner, this one is a beauty.  I'd conservatively grade it an 8.0.  I guess we'll find out sometime in the future when I send my next batch of key Superman books off to CGC.
