Introduction to All-American Comics #16 

The July 1940 issue of All-American Comics #16 was published by All American in the early days of The Golden Age of Comics. It featured the origin and first appearance of one of the most enduring and popular super-heroes of all-time – Green Lantern, created by Martin Nodell (under the pen name of Mart Dellon) with Bill Finger providing the script. After surviving a train crash and finding the Green Flame of Life Alan Scott tracks down the culprit responsible for the wreck. The incident does inspire Scott to use his powers the fight crime and to become The Green Lantern. Like Superman before him, All-American spun off the super-hero into his own title, even while continuing to feature him in All-American Comics for nearly a decade. All-American Comics #16 is considered rarer than many other “key” issues from the same era, which has played a part in a steady increase in collector demand and value. The influential Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books rates the issue a “7” or “Scarce”, meaning at the time of its publication, an estimated 21 to 50 still in existence. In 2018 a Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) 6.5 (FN+) copy was sold at Heritage Auctions for $215,100 eclipsing the 2013 Heritage Auctions higher graded Billy Wright Pedigree copy in 8.0 (VF) grade for $203,150.

Brief History of All-American Comics

All-American Comics was the flag-ship title of Max Gaines’ All-American line of comic books. In order to save money on administrative cost, All-American struck a deal with National (DC) to share office and distributive cost. Hence the DC bullet on early issues.  Begun in 1939, All-American Comics #1 debuted in the spring of 1939 featuring the first appearance of Hop Harrigan and Red White & Blue.  Scribbly made his first appearance outside of a Dell comic.  The book was filled out with newspaper favorites such as Mutt & Jeff, Skippy, Reg’lar Fellers and others.  The first attempt at a super-hero was Gary Concord, Ultra-Man in All-American Comics #8, November 1939.

The game-changer came with the July 1940 issue of All-American Comics #16.  It featured the first appearance of Green Lantern (Alan Scott).  It also set the stage for super-heroes to quickly populate the pages of All-American.  All-American Comics #19 featured the first appearance of The Atom (Al Pratt) and the last appearance of Ultra-Man.  Even Ma Hunkle from the Scribbly strip gets into the new super-hero craze by becoming Red Tornado in All-American Comics #20All-American Comics #24 features text origins for two upcoming super-heroes Dr. Mid-Nite (debuting in All-American Comics #25) and Sargon the Sorcerer (All-American Comics #26).

With a stable line-up now set, change came slowly.  The biggest change was Max Gaines selling his All-American line to National.  The 1946 titles saw the return of the DC bullet on the cover. Highlights for the rest of the run include All-American Comics #61 (origin and 1st appearance of Solomon Grundy), All-American Comics #89 (origin and 1st appearance of Harlequin) and All-American #100 (1st appearance of Johnny Thunder by Alex Toth).  All-American Comics’ last issue is #102, but only because of a title and content change.  Johnny Thunder remained as the lead feature in the new All-American Western which continued until issue #126.

5. 地缘政治事件。不久之前,石油供应稍有差池,油价就会飙升。比如说2014年初,利比亚内乱造成该国石油出口中断,油价应声上涨。在伊拉克, 极端组织ISIS领了部分地区,石油供应中断的顾虑也造成油价急剧攀升。然而,自此之后,地缘政治事件对油价的影响大为减弱。2014年最后几周,利比亚再现战事。但市场仅在油价短暂上扬后便把这一问题抛诸脑后。不过,历史一再证明,地缘政治危机是对油价影响最大的短期因素之一。(财富中文网)
