FANTASTIC FOUR 1961-96 #50
CGC NM/M: 9.8
The Surfer was famously dropped into his first appearance by Jack Kirby without warning his collaborator, Stan Lee, who was first bemused then intrigued by this bizarre and inventive new addition to the rapidly ballooning FF galaxy. By his third appearance in this landmark issue, Lee had solidified a tragic, Shakespearean arc for the new character, pitting him against his galactic master with the universe at stake and gracing him with tortured inner monologues and a questing spirit. The proof of the character's near-instantaneous acceptance with Marvel's increasingly college-aged readership is seen on this classic cover, where the upstart antagonist completely steals the focus from the book's supposed leads. Note the Thing's bewilderment at this unexpected turn of events.

Carefully selected from the newsstand by their original owner, Northland pedigree comics boast an unusually fresh, sharp appearance and bright pages, carefully stored over the years to maintain their day-one luster. This breathtaking copy, tied for highest-graded, displays the compelling characteristics that the Northland books are famed for, and will surely be a magnet for all Fantastic Four collectors and Marvel enthusiasts.
