Kirby cover/art; origin & 1st app. Fantastic Four; 1st Mole Man; the Marvel Age begins here! (11/61)
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. This dynamic and historic first issue hit the ground running with an action-packed cover and one of the most thrilling and engrossing origin stories of the era.
Ah yes! The first family of Marvel Comics! Always a fan favorite and the true start to what we all know as the Marvel Comics Universe. Fantastic Four #1 is a must have! Very clean with white/off-white pages and nice bright colors this copy in VF/NM-9.0 condition is very desireable and will be one to watch this auction! Long overshadowed by Amazing Fantasy 15, this is really THE Marvel key, and the book that started the Marvel Age. Once Marvel regains the movie rights to the FF, and you know it will happen, this book is going to explode! Get in early on this undervalued key! A 9.0 copy sold for $145,450 in December of 2012.

Overstreet Guide 2016 VF/NM (9.0) value = $82,000.

origin and 1st app. Wonder Woman; one of the scarcest major Golden Age keys!
DC's Big Three were blessed with auspicious beginnings. All Star Comics 8 did for Wonder Woman what Action 1 and Detective 27 did for Superman and Batman. America's Guardian Angel was an instant hit who served as a graphic representative of the women's war effort during WWII, predating Rosie the Riveter by two years. Her origin was presented as the daughter of Hippolyta, who rescued fighter pilot Steve Trevor, whose pursuit of a Nazi spy ended with his crash landing on Paradise Island. Men are forbidden on the island, but, in divining his past, Hippolyta recognized that he was a hero worthy of sacrifice. The Amazons decided to aid the war effort and defeat the evil Nazis. Diana is ultimately chosen for the assignment.

Most collectors know that origin stories and first appearances of iconic characters are amongst the most-desirable qualities in a key issue, and this Golden Age treasure is one of the big keys of the DC stable. With the recently released "Wonder Woman" trailer making waves across the internet, the upcoming Gal Gadot vehicle promises to drive the value of this book into the stratosphere. Displaying bright colors and a well-preserved central image, this book comes at a price tag that makes it available to a broader spectrum of bidders than a higher-grade example of this important GA key.

1st app. of Archie, Betty, & Jughead
While the superhero craze was booming across newsstands, up and coming publishers like MLJ were looking for ways to stand out from the pack by creating new twists on existing tropes. In the case of MLJ, pay dirt had already been struck with Wilbur, the original comic-book teen craze, leading Bob Montana to pitch his idea for an awkward, girl-crazy teen based on his own experiences and sketches from his teenage years in small-town Massachusetts. As with his predecessor, the character's first appearance was an instant hit with readers, but unlike the rather cartoonish and limited Wilbur, Archie's personality and social circle were completely relatable to contemporary American youth, and proved to be not only resilient, but arguably the most commercially successful comic book creation of all time after Superman. This first appearance is incredibly rare, even more so than the first Action Comics, and invariably sells for record numbers on the few occasions it is offered on the market. This is probably one of the two or three most important comics ever published.

This key belongs in a category all to itself. It's one of those books that we're lucky to see every few years, and whose rarity and legendary status causes ripples throughout the office as we clamor to get a chance to look at this elusive treasure. One of the scarcest of major Golden Age keys, this first appearance of Archie Andrews has attained iconic status in recent years, as collectors have cottoned to its importance, value, and scarcity. Bob Montana turned his gangly adolescent past into universally-relatable four-color fodder, launching an entertainment juggernaut in the process.
The serious comic book collector knows exactly how important this particular comic bookis. The first appearance of Archie Andrews, who has been wildly popular and never been out of print since his creation, is iconic to say the least. Very rare in any grade, this one in VG/F-5.0 condition may be just clean enough to invest in without breaking the bank.

Overstreet Guide 2016 VG/F (5.0) value = $55,000.

Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Spider-Man; 1st Uncle Ben & Aunt May
This is the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics 1: an historic, game-changing key issue that acts as a pivot point from what came before, and what came after. The creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this radical new concept featured a passive, neurotic, everyman hero; an unusually emotionally charged origin story touching on issues of mortality and family tragedy; a worldview grounded solidly in a real, recognizable universe obviously our own; and open-ended storytelling that demanded and rewarded close reading and regular readership. This milestone comic has also proven to be the success story of comics investment, growing rapidly and unstoppably in value and becoming one of the few completely bulletproof investments in recent times. This is THE Silver Age comic.
Without question, this book will enjoy a continued rise in value and desirability, with the introduction of Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, interest in the character and what his future holds in store is again at a fever pitch. We are happy to be able to offer this handsome copy to our clients, consistently in the top tier in terms of price and collectability, this is one book no serious comic fan should be without, here is another opportunity to own one of the true keys, an instantly recognizable piece of pop-culture history.

1st Sub-Mariner; 1st Human Torch; 1st Angel; 1st Marvel comic!! Frank R Paul cover
This is the beginning. Without this, there would be no Marvel Universe, no Captain America punching Hitler, no Marvel movies, no Spider-Man, not even today's superhero mythology as we know it. One of the top 5 most important comics ever published, this haunting, moody, aggressively atmospheric issue took the simple, colorful genre pioneered by Shuster and Siegel and made it something vast and compelling. Featuring the first appearance of the Human Torch by Carl Burgos, the first Angel by Paul Gustavson, and, vitally, the first appearance of the Sub-Mariner, by Bill Everett, whose deft illustrations instantly raised the bar for the new hero craze and melded the classically trained pulp cover tradition with the stark new look of cape comics. Also featuring the first Ka-Zar, Ben Thompson's Tarzan swipe designed to attract the still-vibrant pulp readership, this is likely the scarcest of major Golden Age keys, which never fails to ignite a frenzy of attention when copies come to market.
Once again we come across a legendary comic book in Marvel Comics #1. Extremely rare in any grade, this restored copy has all the ear marks of a very wise investment. Restored up to a NM/9.4 condition, you will be hard pressed to find a cleaner copy anywhere.

Overstreet Guide 2016 NM- (9.2) value = $575,000.

RARE! 1st Slam Bradley/Spy by Siegel & Shuster
Having practically started the comic book market singlehandedly with the historic New Fun in 1935, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson partnered with Harry Donenfeld in 1937 to again make history with Detective Comics 1, which launched their new publishing venture as well as kick-started the careers of Superman creators, Siegel and Shuster. The crude Yellow Peril cover helped sell the book to the vital pulp market, and hinted at the mysterious yarns spun within.
There is absolutely true beatuty in imperfection, this copy's moderate wear certainly does not completely distract from this book's loud cover. This comic is hard to find, so bring a big bucket of bids to the lot, because you're going to need it!

classic Batman over castle cover by Bob Kane!; 1st Batplane! (9/39)
Detective issues 27 and 38 may get all the attention, but true Bat-fanatics and Golden Age aficionados know that pre-Robin issues 28 through 37 contain some of the most moody and compelling Batman stories ever published, and some of the most dynamic covers of the pre-war era. This issue is probably the most famous and most difficult to obtain, and became the iconic image of the caped crusader for the Golden Age. Dark, brooding, and classic, this cinematic image more than any other captures the drama and crude power of early Batman, and easily demonstrates why so many Bat-collectors are nearly fetishistic about this brief but fertile period in the character's history. No serious DC Golden Age collection is complete without this masterpiece, which explains the feeding frenzy that ensues on the rare instances that copies make it to market. The Batman tale contained within this book's pages bears the distinction of introducing not only the Batgyro, precursor to the Batplane, but also the famous Batarang, a useful tool still brandished by the Caped Crusader to great effect in the modern day. Batman uses these gadgets in an attempt to rescue his fiancee, Julie Madison, from the Monk, a hooded and robed baddie, who employs hypnosis and gorillas in his nefarious plans!
Well before DC started to pander to young children in the 50's and 60's, Batman was a very dark character. The cover of Detective #31 shows that brilliantly with the creepy castle and even in low grade this is a very hard to find issue. Always a wise investment! Bid early and bid often!

A Stan Lee signature on the cover of one of the most-important Silver Age Marvel books, what could be cooler?

Kirby cover/art; origin and 1st app. Hulk, Rick Jones, Betty Ross, & General Ross; one of the top five Marvel keys!!
Inspired by Jekyll & Hyde and the Jewish myth of the Golem, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby kept their hot streak running with the big and brutal Hulk. This instantly classic issue preys on Cold War fears of nuclear annihilation and the average American boy's body discomfort and confusion to create one of the most haunting and affecting of hero origins. Initially colored grey in his premier appearance, the lead character was quickly reworked into a big green beast when the primitive four-color printing process mangled the grey color scheme throughout the book, altering the goliath's hue from page to page. The famous cover image still resonates with fans to this day, be it green or grey.

Presented in five parts, this origin story really packs a mean, green punch! After Dr. Bruce Banner becomes exposed to his own invention, the gamma bomb, he undergoes his first transformation into the Hulk. What ensues is a tale of Cold War intrigue involving the interplay between a duo of mutated beings, which packs enough poignancy and torment to make Frankenstein's Monster take notice. This tale struck a chord with readers of the period and The Hulk quickly secured his place at the top of Marvel's popularity pyramid.
Incredible Hulk #1 is already a very rare comic in high grade. Add that to the fact that this is a UK edition and you have yourself a very scarce comic book. One should also note, pence copies were printed at the same time as cents copies and on the same presses but are much rarer, and this is the highest graded pence copy currently known in existence. The book is solid at VF- 7.5 condition with very little discernable wear to be seen.

Overstreet Guide 2016 VF- (7.5) value = $36,500.

Bob Montana cvr/art; 1st app. Mrs. Andrews
Some elements of American pop culture transcend time or place and become iconic, as though they were always there. Archie Andrews, the quintessential American teen, and his friends, Jughead, Reggie, and especially Betty and Veronica, have spent over seven decades portraying the ups and downs of teenage life. Their stories prove as durable and identifiable for audiences today as the day they first appeared on newsstands.

Archie quickly took over the hero anthology Pep Comics shortly after his first appearance and was promptly given his own title, thereby sealing his status as the top teen comedy hero. The success of the comic took MLJ Publishing from a scrappy latecomer to a major powerhouse in the comics market. Despite an enormous print run, Archie Comics 1 has survived in astonishingly low numbers and top tier Archie collectors are notoriously known as the "black holes" of the collecting community, as once they're in a collection, they're never to be seen again. Archie Comics 1 is likely the single most difficult major Golden Age key to obtain after Pep Comics 22, Archie's first appearance. One of the most demanded and revered of comic book keys, this book never fails to elicit excitement when copies surface and regularly breaks records.
This book is a rare find in all grades and is becoming scarcer as copies disappear into collections never to be sold again. In spite of its 2.5 grade, this unrestored copy still has rich colors and a clean appearance that makes a nice showpiece in any Golden Age collection.

Overstreet Guide 2016 G+ (2.5) value = $13,125.

1st app. Dr. Death; 2nd Batman cover
The dark castle, the night gloom, the dark cape, the evil scientist -- the influence of pre-code horror cinema on Bob Kane's nocturnal creation is nowhere more evident than on this classic and painfully rare cover, one of the pre-Robin Detective issues over which Bat-collectors drool. You haven't really experienced the crude power of these early Bat-books until you've seen them in their original pulpy glory, and this second-ever cover appearance by the Batman is still hugely powerful to this day. The story therein pits the Caped Crusader against Dr. Karl Hellfern, aka Doctor Death, who, like all great villains, intends to take over the world, but first, must rid himself of that meddling Batman, which leads to an action-packed tale of mayhem. It's well documented that once Batman received his own title the stories became quite a bit more tame than the ones depicted in early Detective Comics. This issue is no exception as Batman painfully takes a bullet to the shoulder in this tale. How's that for gritty?
This book usually sells for astronomical numbers at higher grades, fortunately we have this copy available to our customers, at a price point that makes it available to a much-larger bidding base. The cover image is a classic of the genre, and all pre-Robin bat-books are considered treasures of the early days of the Caped Crusader, this copy would make a wonderful addition to any Golden Age or Batman fan's collection.

Kirby cover/art; origin & 1st app. Fantastic Four; 1st Mole Man; the Marvel Age begins here! (11/61)
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. This dynamic and historic first issue hit the ground running with an action-packed cover and one of the most thrilling and engrossing origin stories of the era.
Fantastic Four 1 has remained a fairly stable investment despite box office blunders and continues to be an essential Silver Age key issue. At a magnificent 7.0 this copy will retain its value and then some as other copies dip into obscurity.

1st app. & origin Daredevil by Everett; Kirby cvr
You can tell from the Spider-Man plug on the cover that Marvel had, by the time of this book's release, become known as a hero machine by pumping out high-gloss, high-energy heroes and heroines, which sold like hotcakes. In this case, the House of Ideas picked up a Biro hero name, which had been left to linger, dusted it off and added the enticing gimmick of making their Daredevil a blind lawyer, adding both modern intrigue and a great hook. It would take a while for the character to fully hit its stride, but the dynamic Kirby cover and ravishing Everett interiors attracted readers and established Daredevil as a unique and mature alternative to cosmic adventuring and teenage angst.
At a whopping 9.4 who can deny the beauty of such a key? The dynamic Kirby cover exemplifies everything that Marvel was doing right at the time and preserves the legacy of Jack Kirby and Bill Everett s art. A must-have Silver Age key for any Marvel Maniac while waiting with baited breath for Daredevil to return to Netflix in 2018.

Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Spider-Man; 1st Uncle Ben & Aunt May
This is the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics 1: an historic, game-changing key issue that acts as a pivot point from what came before, and what came after. The creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this radical new concept featured a passive, neurotic, everyman hero; an unusually emotionally charged origin story touching on issues of mortality and family tragedy; a worldview grounded solidly in a real, recognizable universe obviously our own; and open-ended storytelling that demanded and rewarded close reading and regular readership. This milestone comic has also proven to be the success story of comics investment, growing rapidly and unstoppably in value and becoming one of the few completely bulletproof investments in recent times. This is THE Silver Age comic.
With the central image of this comic blemish free and no infamous "Marvel Chipping" to be found, this copy of Amazing Fantasy is perfect for those seeking 4.0 qualities in a 3.0 price. The bidding for this unique copy will be intense!

2nd app. Joker, 2nd app. Catwoman; classic Joker splash page
By the second issue of Batman the transformation of the character and franchise from dark, brooding, mystery of the night to cheerful (if bizarre) puncher of bad persons was complete. Even the backgrounds of these covers mark a decisive change from the pre-Robin era: from dense, detailed settings full of menace to bright, eye-catching color washes meant to pry coins from the pockets of precocious boys. Despite the flattening of the character's idiosyncrasies, there was also no denying the inventiveness and joy of these classic-era tales, with Kane's ghost artists -fine craftsmen all- filling pages and pages with deliriously imaginative locales, perfectly craggy thug faces, and no end of action and mayhem.
Sure everyone wants a Batman #1 or Detective #27 but what happens when you finally get them? You need to get everything that comes after! This beautiful copy of Batman #2 in VF/8.0 unrestored condition is sure to be of great interest to the serious collector of the Drak Knight. Bold colors and white/off-white pages make this a real treasure! Bid often!

Kane/Romita cvr; 1st app. the Punisher; one of the top three Bronze Age keys!
Highest Graded
After more than a decade as Marvels friendly neighborhood front man, the amazing web-slinger swings into the Bronze age with renewed fervor. This issue marks the first appearance of the Punisher. Created by Gerry Conway as the Assassin, but renamed by Stan Lee, and depicted in all his vengeful prowess by Gil Kane, Ross Andru and John Romita, Sr, the Punisher would quickly become one of Marvels most popular and enduring anti-heroes. Relevant to big city crime problems and Mafia activity of the turbulent 1970s, ex-marine and war veteran Frank Castle's vigilantism is born from the horrible slaying of his wife and two children in a Central Park mob shootout. In the wake of tragedy, the Punisher emerges to seek vengeance on organized crime using any and all means at his disposal. Also appearing for the first time in this issue is the Jackal, evil alter ego of biology professor Miles Warren, introduced in Amazing Spider-Man #31. Now an associate of the Punisher, the Jackal convinces him to wage war on the webbed wonder, who he blames for the death of his secret love Gwen Stacy. The Jackal would become the main antagonist in the 90's Clone saga and the 2011 Spider-Island storyline, while the Punisher would appear in multiple self-titled series and three major motion pictures, along with the cult status obtained from his portrayal in Frank Miller's acclaimed run on Daredevil. Who could have guessed that Creator Gerry Conway's original sketch of a small deaths head on his new Characters breast would be brought to iconic t-shirt stardom by Gil Kane's stunning 1974 cover art. One of the most revered and iconic key issues of the Bronze Age. Hot on the tail of his recent appearance in the second season of Marvel's critical smash Netflix series, Daredevil, the Punisher is currently in greater demand than ever. This near-perfect copy of the first appearance of one of the more-popular anti-heroes in the genre should demand a ton of attention in our upcoming auction. With a spinoff series rumored, the sky is the limit for the future of this book, one of the biggest Bronze Age comics out there, we are very happy to offer this high-grade copy to our clientele.

classic chess cover; origin and 1st app. Despero; Justice League movie announced!
After a short but successful run in The Brave and the Bold, the Justice League of America debuted in its very own title in 1960. The superhero team united the forces of some of DC's prime talent, including Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern and the Flash. This issue features the JLA fighting a losing battle against the hypnotic Despero only to be rescued by a simple hipster, Snapper Carr, who is impervious the to the crafty villain's powers.The memorable Ira Schapp / Murphy Anderson chessboard cover has become an instant classic that has been parodied, swiped, and copied repeatedly in the fifty years since publication. The fine detail of the small characters on the chess board, as well as the interesting perspective, showcase the impeccable craft of DC's crackerjack artist stable.
Here we have another impressive example of a Silver Age touchstone, the fresh, blazingly bright and rich chromatic scheme on the cover seems to have just been picked up at a newsstand instead of being held for safekeeping for nearly fifty-five years. A wonderfully well-preserved copy of an absolute "must-have" DC key, one that is sure to see a spike in interest, particularly with the upcoming JLA movie looming on the horizon.

Classic giant Spectre cvr by Baily, 3rd app.
This book contains the first full story of the Spectre in costume behind a classic cover. Created by Jerry Siegel and Bernard Baily, the Spectre is Detective Jim Corrigan. Murdered by gangsters and turned away from the after-life, he was instead inhabited by a ghostly spirit with a green cloak, which often emerged from his body to right wrongs, combat evil, and pass judgment.
More Fun Comics #54 is the 3rd appearance of the spooky Spectre. With DC starting to show a real rise in popularity with some of their recent films and successful TV shows, it's only a matter of time before collectors and fans start clamoring for early appearances of the lesser known, yet incredibly cool characters like the Spectre. At a solid VF/8.0 grade, there are very few copies better than this one. Don't miss out on what may be a very valuable comic in the near future.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st Silver Age Captain America
Heralding the first appearance of the Star-Spangled Avenger since the Golden Age, Avengers 4 is a prime example of the genius shared by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. With Captain America practically running off the cover and into your living room, this bombastic image screams with excitement. With the success of the Captain America and Avengers movies, the value of this iconic comic has only one place to go, and that's up! One of the most important books of the Silver Age.
Marvel is using their movie franchise to push their characters further and further into the public consciousness. Captain America is at the forefront of the new marketing strategy, acting as a link between all the other Marvel film franchises. Much of that template is based off of this book, Stan Lee's risky but brilliant attempt to restore the Golden Age grandeur to his new, more realistic Silver Age universe. Lee cut his teeth on Captain America during his youth as a scrappy, headstrong office boy and proudly resuscitated the character, along with creator Jack Kirby, in the 1960s. The duo went on to effectively launch the Marvel Age in all its glory and thrilled a generation of readers brought up on the Super Soldier's exploits. One of the most famous and beloved covers of the Silver Age, this copy is in incredible condition, featuring blinding whites and sparkling colors. High-grade copies of this book never fail to ignite bidding frenzies at auction, and we expect this copy to be no exception.

origin retold; 1st app. Guardians of the Universe
After the runaway success of the Flash's reintroduction, DC Publisher Julius Schwartz and his hungry staff of writers and artists hurriedly resuscitated more of their beloved Golden Age favorites. One of the indisputable successes was the reboot of the mystical Green Lantern franchise, featuring a new look by industry favorite Gil Kane. DC was placing all its bets on the new, Atomic-age breed of heroes, expecting that they would break the company's long dry spell on the stands. Boomer readers were instantly transfixed by the cleverly boyish cover image. In the Silver Age iteration of Green Lantern, Hal Jordan receives his power ring from dying alien Abin Sur, resulting in an audience with the Guardians of the Universe, who deem him worthy to take the place of their fallen charge. Jordan soon heads off to Calor to battle a volcanic monster, thus launching the revamped version of the Green Lantern on his star-bound service in defense of the cosmos.
With the rumors of Geoff Johns offically taking the president role for DC entertainment, fans of the DCU are highly anticipating a Green Lantern film done right. It will be a wise investment, G.L. is one of DC's most popular character's and has not been given his just desert. Other bidder's will realize this, you'll need to bid high to win this giant!

1st full app. Wolverine; the most popular Bronze Age key!
Born of a desire to diversify the Marvel roster by adding international heroes, and inspired by the feisty, ill-tempered animal that is his namesake, Wolverine quickly 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. This book is a demarcation 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, haunted heroes of the Bronze and Copper Age. Hands down this is the best-known of all Bronze Age keys, and the first Bronze book to break the $10,000 sales mark.
The CGC census shows us that there are 277, CGC 9.6 copies, 434, CGC 9.4, copies, and only 101, CGC 9.8 copies. You, and you alone, could be amongst the elite group of 101'ers in the world to posess this mighty Bronze age gem. Let us not forget, a bonus, a non certified Stan Lee signature, yours to wipe clean, if you so choose! Cautious bidders be damned, go bold, bid high!
