CGC VF/NM: 9.0
Inspired by DC's top-selling smorgasbord of heroes, the Justice League of America, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby decided to go one better when tasked with creating a copycat title for Marvel. Instead of a mashup of existing heroes, Lee and Kirby struck upon the novel concept of creating a super-family, allowing young readers to instantly identify with the day-to-day squabbles and growing pains of the protagonists while still enjoying liberal doses of heroism and derring-do. With the addition of groundbreaking cosmic imagery and sci-fi themes, FF became one of the most adventurous and addictive of all Marvel Silver Age titles. This dynamic and historic first issue hits the ground running with an action-packed cover and one of the most thrilling and engrossing origin stories of the era.

This book NEVER turns up in high grade, or at least hardly ever and, WOW, this one's a beauty. Bright white background, deep greens, crisp reds, and rich blacks, an overall splendid copy with amazing eye appeal. One of the nicest-looking Marvel SA keys we've ever had the pleasure of carrying, and a book that is sure to attract a lot of attention, a gem of the auction.
