CGC NM/M: 9.8
X-Men #101 sets in motion one of the most celebrated and tragic plotlines in the history of superhero comics, this is the issue where Jean Grey, previously known as Marvel Girl, transforms into the Phoenix. As X-Men fans know, the story of Jean Grey's stuggles to control the massive power she wields as the Phoenix will one day end up up destroying her, as well as crushing the spirits of her teammates and loved ones. The legendary tale is unanimously recognized as one of the best plots in comics history, as a maturing readership opened up to weightier fare in the late 70s and early 80s, a renaissance period in the comic indistry. This first appearance of the iconic character is already a popular investment book, and with an MCU reboot on the horizon, the sky is the limit on this issue.



Like a Phoenix from the ashes, this 9.8 X-Men #101 from the Key Comics Collection rises to glory as one of the highest-graded on the census, which maintains outstanding blue and green tones and crisp corners.
