FANTASTIC FOUR 1961-96 #1

Grade:
CGC FN-: 5.5
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. Disney's purchase of Fox Studios has given Marvel back their rights to the Fantastic Four properties so expect another silver screen reboot in the MCU in the coming years. Hopefully the third time will be the charm! Silver Age Marvel keys like this one are always in high demand and there is no sign of abatement anytime soon.

igh-grade copies of this cornerstone comic can sell in the six-figure range, but mid-grade copies, such as this FN- example, can be had at a reasonable price. This book has off-white pages and vivid cover colors. No Marvel collection is complete without an FF #1.

Overstreet Guide 2018 FN- (5.5) value = $10,500.
