Pg. 3; Jack Kirby pencils, Sol Brodsky inks; image size 12.5" x 18"
By the time Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had launched the Fantastic Four, both were already industry veterans. Lee started at a young age banging out text pieces for Golden Age Timelys in between running errands for the understaffed publishing house, while Kirby had almost single-handedly invented the crime and romance genres while crafting a mountain of classic characters for National, Timely, and others. Both creators were hungry to leave their mark on a moribund industry, making these early FFs a perfect combination of storytelling chops and bold ambition.

This page is a nearly flawless example of comic book craftsmanship, taking what could have been a drab, straightforward sequence and giving it speed, excitement, and focus. Kirby makes his unlikely hero, the Thing, both grotesque and relatable, his everyman posture and endearingly shabby topcoat giving heft and scale to his outsized presence, a perfect contrast to the smug, sleek grace of the Miracle Man. Sol Brodsky provides a clean, stylized line to tidy up Kirby's famously blunt pencils, making both Ben Grimm and his magician antagonist distinct characters. Silver Age Marvel pages are very hard to obtain and this page, featuring one of Kirby's most famous creations front and center, is a guaranteed draw for serious comic art enthusiasts.

Steve Rude pencils,inks and signed "S. Rude '2000"; Recreation Cover; image size 10.25" x 16.5"
Steve Rude is best known as the co-creator of Nexus, a sci-fi/superhero crossover title that has a loyal cult following, so it is fitting that this talented artist should use the skills he learned straddling the two genres in his loving tribute to Jack Kirby and the Fantastic Four. Rude has recreated this cover several times, in different mediums, but in this version he took some artistic liberties, slightly altering the design and, in doing so, creating a unique piece that pays respect to the king of all comic artists and showcases his own considerable skills. A perfect piece for fans of the Fantastic Four, Kirby or Rude, or all three, and at a price much more affordable than an original Kirby cover would be.

Pg. 9; Jack Kirby pencils, Chic Stone inks; 12.5" x 18.5"
Marvel gained its reputation by creating recognizable, human heroes with quirks and neuroses, and the impressive feat achieved by Lee and Kirby in FF was the creation of a real family, four deeply bonded individuals who love and annoy one another in equal measure. The Fantastic Four stood out from the pack immediately upon its debut because of the strong characterization. Some of Kirby's best and most-heartfelt work was done on this book, as is evidenced by this remarkable page, which leans heavily on body language and facial expression to give our heroes depth and distinctiveness. Where other artists may have relied on flashy angles, exaggerated action, and false drama to develop this story, Kirby gives his cast a chance to breathe and even manages to get some expressiveness into a giant dude made of rock. It's these quieter moments that are toughest to achieve, and Kirby absolutely nails it.

Early Silver Age Marvel art is far and away the most requested by collectors, and this stunning masterpiece of comic storytelling boasts all four members of the classic FF lineup. There is always a huge amount of interest whenever a classic Kirby page goes up for auction, and we expect this piece to generate a decent amount of heat come hammer time.

Pg. 23 from Kayo Kirby story; Matt Baker/John Forte pencils and inks; image size 12.25" x 18.75"
This beautifully rendered page from Fight Comics #54 was drawn by Matt Baker, recognized for his deft, smooth linework and impeccable skill, Baker is also attributed as the first African-American to find success in the comic book industry. The page is from a Kayo Kirby story, Kirby, a boxer and lawyer, was one of the hundreds of Golden Age anthology characters that would eventually give way to the costumed superheroes that ruled the roost throughout the wartime era. Owning a page of Matt Baker art is a dream come true to knowledgable collectors, as Baker was one of the finest purveyors of what has come to be known as Good Girl Art, his groundbreaking work on Phantom Lady is generally accepted as some of the finest GGA work of the Golden Age. His work for the Eisner/Iger studios is renowned throughout the industry to this day, and his tragically short life made his work rare and fervently sought after by savvy art fans.

2nd comic book; 1933 Eastern Color giveaway; wraparound cvr
It begins here. Considered by most serious comics historians to be the first true American comic book, this 1933 one-shot established the size, length, and format of the comic book for decades to come. A sprightly, vivid, seismic shock that may not have seemed important at the time, but essentially provided the foundation for the art form that would come to dominate the latter half of the 20th century and fire the imaginations of generations of readers and artists. This incredibly rare comic, distributed through the late, lamented chain of Woolworth stores, enjoyed an aggressively high print run, yet survives in extremely low numbers today, making it not only one of the most important comics ever published, but also one of the most coveted.

off white pgs; Jack Kirby & Stan Lee written on 1st pg in pen, tp int. cvr
Kirby cvr/art; origin & 1st app. Fantastic Four; 1st Mole Man; the Marvel Age begins here (11/61)
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.

Who knew that the need for a faddish, sci-fi based villain would result in storylines and mythology spanning across decades? It wasn't as though Lee and Kirby were consciously creating a pop-culture world in the rocky days of early Silver Age Marvel, they were just trying to make fun comics that would sell and attract readers -- but, by following the hyperactive lead of their imaginative audience, they developed a language and style and mythos that carries on to this day, to the movies and beyond.

In the spirit of recycling, both DC and Marvel dusted off and rethought their classic Golden Age characters in the rough-and-tumble marketplace of the early Silver Age, including one of the most intriguing and unusual of all Timely creations, the fearsome Sub-Mariner. While the Golden Age Namor was a pulpy, tortured anti-hero, the Silver Age Namor was more aggressively antagonistic, with his antipathy the FF exacerbated by his longing for the fetching Sue Storm. In this first Silver Age appearance of this distinctive character, Lee and Kirby ratchet up the action and drama to a hyperbolic degree, firmly establishing this series as one of the most gloriously inventive of all Silver Age Marvel titles.

Kirby claims that Doom, a genius inventor, sorcerer, and leader of Latveria, is inherently evil. As a result of his facial disfigurement and hatred for Reed Richards, he lashes out against the world in perpetual vengeance. He is one of the greatest and most complex villains ever created in the world of comics and he first appears here in Fantastic Four # 5.

1st Kurrgo; UFO cover (10/62)
n Fantastic Four #7, the seeds that would eventually grow into the inspiration for the X-Men are sown by Kirby and Lee as they weave a tale that highlights the sense of otherness and fear of alienation that the new wave of Marvel superheroes were acutely aware of, as is evinced by the FF's reluctance to attend a dinner in their honor in Washington D.C. Their trepidation is soon validated as their hosts turn on them and they beat a hasty retreat back to the safety of the Baxter building, only to discover they have been unknowingly drafted into preventing a cosmic calamity by the shifty Kurrgo, Master of Planet X. The rest of the story is a real nail-biter of mega, and miniature, proportions all at once.

Much has been said about the impact and legacy the humanistic tales dreamt up by Lee, and fleshed out by Kirby have had on the Silver Age and beyond, and this issue of Fantastic Four is simply brimming with game-changing ideas. Never before had simple comic book characters exuded such gravitas, and expressed so many of the emotions that common mortals experience on a daily basis.
