Grade:
CGC VF+: 8.5
The Avengers movie and its sequels stand in the ranks of the highest-grossing movies of all time. The enduring popularity of the films and subsequent interest in back-issue investment comics, has swollen auction prices of the original Silver Age series and affiliated titles. With no plans to end the MCU any time soon, we predict, the books will continue to gain in value as demand remains strong. The popular key first issue, Avengers #1 debuted in September 1963, piggybacking on the success of DC's Justice League and Marvel's original super-team, the Fantastic Four. With art by Jack Kirby and story by Stan Lee, this classic Silver Age book has garnered a tremendous amount of respect and value to investors. Original readers were delighted to learn the story of how the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Ant-Man, and Wasp joined forces to become Earth's Mightiest Heroes. As far as Marvel keys are concerned, Avengers #1 is still an undervalued comic.

With the unprecedented success of the Avengers film franchise and its ensuing multiplicity in the MCU, this is one of the most important comics a fan could own. The masterful lines and enrapturing compositions of Kirby's hand are presented in full force, as a harbinger of what would go on to become the hottest property in film history.
