A terrific fantasy/sience fiction title that was first distributed in the UK with #37 dated Nov 1959. All issues prior to this are Non Distributed  (ND) in the UK at the time of publication and are therefore cents copies. #80 is a much under-rated Silver Age DC key issue as it features the origin and first appearance of Doom Patrol and is tough to get in high grade owing to the very dark/black cover.

I love this title. The early stories read like sensational headlines from a newspaper: "I Became the Beetle-Beast!" or "We Found the Ice-Age Giant!". These were science-fiction stories set on Earth (as opposed to outer space in the companion title Strange Adventures).

Although this title was distributed normally in the UK to my knowledge without any especially scarce or rare issues, the fact is that fewer copies came over in comparison to main titles and good sellers like Superman and Batman. You just don't see early pence copies of My Greatest Adventure.
