Value of Adventure Comics #1-100
(New Comics #1-11, New Adventure #12-31)

Value of Key Issue DC Adventure Comics

The early history of this classic Golden Age series is a little complicated.

Adventure first appeared in 1935, under the title New Comics.

National Allied Publications, one of the companies that eventually merged into DC, created it as a humor series.

With issue #12, the name was changed to New Adventure, and with that name change came a format change, moving towards serious adventure.

By the time that issue #32 came around in November, 1938, the title was shortened to Adventure.

In issue #40, superheroes began to appear, and would dominate the title until 1972, when Adventure became a fantasy/supernatural anthology series.

Superheroes returned only a few issues later, although usually the title featured more "off the beaten path" heroes. It was eventually canceled in 1983.

It began life in 1935 as New Comics for issues #1-11. These are quite rare comic books and seldom turn up in good condition.

Issue #12 was changed to New Adventure Comics. It continued this way until issue #32, when the word "New" was dropped.

Some of the New Adventure issues are considered the rarest of all DC Comics.

It should be mentioned that any Golden Age comic is generally very desirable to collectors, and even the "pre-superhero" era of Adventure proves that true.

A copy of New Adventure #26, from 1938, and still bearing the transitional title, New Adventure, is very hard to price because copies are extremely scarce.

This issue appeared a month before Action Comics #1, and featured an ad for Action #1. It was one of the first times an image of Superman would be seen in print.

Issue #40 of Adventure features Wesley Dodds, aka The Sandman, in a story called The Tarantula Strikes.
