Night Nurse is a comic book series published by Marvel Comics in the early 1970s. Linda Carter, one of the series' three central characters, previously was the lead of an earlier Marvel series, Linda Carter, Student Nurse, published in 1961. Carter later adopted the name Night Nurse for herself, and in this incarnation, first appeared in Daredevil #58, as a medical professional specializing in helping injured superheroes.

Note that this comic book was an experiment by Marvel Comics in 1972 that was an attempt to bring in female buyers to a notoriously almost all-male hobby! They resurrected a 1961 character, but to hedge their bets, they printed far fewer than normal amounts of each issue. After the fourth issue with very disappointing sales, Marvel ended the comic. Because of its low print run, each of those issues sell for very high amounts in high grades.
Important Added Info: Note that we are currently auctioning the first three issues of this very low print run Marvel comic, in three separate auctions!

Note that because this is an earlier issue, we have pictured many pages of the comic book in this auction, but due to a space limitation, only TEN of those images are displayed above. IMPORTANT: there is a "supersize" link to the right of those images that lets you see the other ones, so be sure to click on that to see ALL the images from this comic.

Please note that we don't use a "comic guide" grading system, and OUR grading scale is completely different from standard comic book grading. Our "very good" is completely different from a comic book graded "very good". We provide many images of the comic book (covers, plus interior 2-page spreads), which surely allows you to get an excellent opinion of the exact condition of this comic book, so it takes out any worries that the comic has been "over-graded", because you can "grade" it yourself, by looking at the many images!

This is one of a remarkable collection of 268 mostly 1970s Marvel comics, including 136 issues of The Amazing Spider-Man, with most of the issues between #15 and #156, plus #2 and #12! These were consigned directly from the collector who gathered them in the 1970s, and none have had any restoration or have been "slabbed"! And EVERY one of these 268 comics start at $1 with truly no reserve. This is the kind of buying opportunity every comic book collector dreams of, and when these auctions close on October 26, every one of these comics will have a new owner!

Condition: very good.
