“He may be best known for laying down the theories of the Fourth Dimension, but Albert Einstein has also traveled through several dimensions – in comic books, at least. Yes, the beloved ‘father of relativity’ has made quite a few appearances in comic books over the years, sometimes in surprising ways. This is the first” (DCSACT, 12 June 2017).

The title, “The Boy Who Wasn’t Too Bright,” is a reference to Einstein’s quiet demeanor as a child, which led many to believe that he wasn’t actually very smart” (Platt, “When Superman Met Einstein,” Grapevine, March 28, 2016). Item #1262

CONDITION & DETAILS: DC Comics. Complete. Professionally rendered repairs to the front wrap, visible at the spine and to the right side of the wrap. While the repairs are difficult to spot, they are there and the photos were taken quite close in order to make them evident. That said, unless you were looking for them they were done so well that they are difficult to spot. Apart from this, the comic is bright and clean as is the custom case.

Price: $875.00
