1st Antman by Kirby! Antman Movie is coming!!!
This is the great "hidden" success story of Marvel keys -- at nearly every convention we've attended in the past ten years, this book has sold quickly, it ends up on pretty much every Marvel want list we get. Even before Marvel's recent reinvention of the character this was the secret key, rarer than most, and seemingly in huge, if subtle demand. Not anymore -- this book has now exploded in demand and value, thanks both to its scarcity and the sudden resurgence of interest in the character (Marvel greenlighting an Ant-Man movie franchise certainly helps). The cover of this classic book hearkens back to the sci-fi monster mashes of the 1950s that were popping up like weeds all over the TV dial at the time of this issue's publication. It's likely that Lee and Kirby were trying to cash in on the popularity of giant-bug movies among their adolescent readership, but also retaining the flexibility to sneak the anthology title slowly into the superhero realm that would prove to be Marvel's bread and butter before too long.
The first appearance of Ant-Man is extremely difficult to find in high grade and this copy only has three above it on the census. With auction prices skyrocketing for copies in any grade, this copy will be fought over something fierce. The Ant-Man movie release date is July 17, 2015. B image includes ad image for the upcoming movie!

Overstreet Guide 2014 VF/NM (9.0) value = $20,000
