Buscema UFO cover; Kirby, Ditko art
Highest Graded
CGC NM+: 9.6
The vigorous faces and dynamic staging that would come to define John Buscema's classic 1970s work for Marvel are already evident in this exciting sfi-fi cover, a great example of the kind of rapid-fire, no-nonsense genre storytelling that kept Atlas (later Marvel) moving throughout the turbulent 1950s. Atlas pre-hero horror books are tough to come by, and nearly impossible to find in nice condition, so any time you see an Atlas horror book in acceptable shape, grab it right away, it won't last.

In my entire career I have never seen a Tales of Suspense #3 in any grade above a VF. When you think of rare 1950s comics in high grade, early pre-hero Marvels pop up immediately in one's mind. The colors on this book make it look like it was printed yesterday. An unforgettable Buscema cover captures the moment in full color and silhoutte in this epic Scifi original! Highest Graded, 1 of 1 and the highest graded TOS of any of the first five issues according to the CGC census. Bid Strong and Prosper!
