Born of a desire to diversify the Marvel roster with international heroes, and inspired by the feisty, ill-tempered animal that is his namesake, Wolverine quickly and unexpectedly became the breakout character of Marvel's Bronze Age, and this first appearance is the closest thing that era has to an Action Comics #1. Like that first Superman appearance, this book pretty much marks the dividing line between what came before and what comes after, as this dark, brooding anti-hero flew in the face of all previous conventions and came to define the cynical, violent, haunted heroes of the Bronze and Copper Age, in much the same way the neurotic, surreal adventures of Spider-Man and the FF came to define Marvel's Silver Age. Hands down the best-known and most popular of all Bronze Age keys, and the first Bronze book to break the $10,000 sales mark, this book is still in high demand.
This wonderful copy of this important key looks the way you would want a CGC 9.8 to look. Perfectly centered. Copy has no markings/stamps of any kind.
Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $1,700. CGC census second highest graded.
