CGC NM/M: 9.8
But he just got here! Oh, well, alright then, never mind. Apparently, only one issue into the run of Marvel's spanking-new team title, the Hulk, never one for deep contemplation or soul-searching, simply up and walks out the door, making it instantly apparent to readers that this new and brave Marvel universe would be anything but predictable. Stan Lee, doggedly steering the new hero ship of the previously struggling publisher, would continually challenge himself and his readers with odd twists, sudden character shifts, role reversals, anything to keep things fresh and sales up, so it's no real surprise. What's cunning and revealing is how Lee was quietly using his audience's identification with the misunderstood brute to coax them into accepting the return of one of the company's great names of the past, Captain America, as the hero team's search for their wayward green teammate would eventually lead to the discovery of the first Avenger's frozen form. With the Marvel movie franchise reaching new heights of success with each subsequent release, early issues such as these grow more and more popular and coveted year by year.
This highest-graded copy of Avengers #2 is simply beautiful to behold, the yellows, greens, and reds glow off the cover, every detail is razor sharp. The Second City collection has a wealth of riches to drool over, but this here is one very special book, sure to be a hit when the hammer drops.
From the estate of a private collector.
