CGC VF-: 7.5
off white pgs; QES Certified - Criteria met: Preferred staple placement + flawless cover edges
Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Spider-Man; 1st Uncle Ben & Aunt May (8/62)
This is the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics #1: a historic, game-changing key issue that acts as a pivot point from what came before, and what came after. The creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this radical new concept featured a passive, neurotic, everyman hero; an unusually emotionally charged origin story touching on issues of mortality and family tragedy; a worldview grounded solidly in a real, recognizable universe obviously our own; and open-ended storytelling that rewarded close attention and regular readership. This milestone has also proven to be the success story of comics investment, growing rapidly and unstoppably in value and becoming one of the few completely bulletproof investments in recent times.


Overstreet Guide 2018 VF- (7.5) value = $77,000.

Ditko cvr/art; origin retold; 1st Chameleon; 1st J. Jonah Jameson; Fantastic Four cover (3/63)
Where previous heroes had their origin stories based in spectacular events, dramatic twists, and high tragedy, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko firmly planted their flagship character's feet in the hard ground of daily life in the big city. Shy, insecure, lower-class teen, Peter Parker, drawn to scrawny imperfection by Ditko, transforms into a freakish, wise-cracking daredevil, tortured by guilt over the loss of his father figure, all while scrambling to make a quick buck from his sudden brush with semi-greatness. Spider-Man's first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 was like nothing anyone had seen before and was an overnight sensation, leading to a hurriedly prepared solo debut issue. Note the use of the Fantastic Four on the cover as insurance, as their group exploits were Marvel's one real box-office draw at the time, and the hungry, ambitious Lee was taking no chances. One of the most important comics of the Silver Age, and the book that proved the Marvel Age was no fluke. Spider-Man's first title issue demarcates a new era of superheroes that is characterized by humanistic protagonists and energetic art that stands apart from the clean-cut crusaders of the Golden Age.

Ditko cvr/art; origin & 1st app. of Mysterio
If you're going to do a hero book with Steve Ditko you may as well go for broke and throw him the most unusual and imaginative villains you can. Thus, Mysterio was born! You can feel everything falling into place by this point, as the Lee/Ditko machine fires on all cylinders. Even the cover seems more confident, more willing to experiment, and more full of ideas than ever before. Note, also, the classic hucksterism along the bottom of the cover, with Marvel happily bragging about its stark break with past conventions, as more and more readers turn on to the Marvel Age of comics. The story within this comic's pages is a real blast as well, introducing a new antagonist, with a bit of a twist, as well as heightening the ongoing tension between Parker/Spider-Man, and Daily Bugle editor, J. Jonah Jameson, who ends up in a sticky situation by the end of the tale.

1st app. & origin Daredevil by Everett; Kirby cover (4/64)
You can tell from the Spider-Man plug on the cover that Marvel had, by the time of this book's release, become known as a hero machine by pumping out high-gloss, high-energy heroes and heroines, which sold like hotcakes. In this case, the House of Ideas picked up a Biro hero name, which had been left to linger, dusted it off and added the enticing gimmick of making their Daredevil a blind lawyer, adding both modern intrigue and a great hook. It would take a while for the character to fully hit his stride, but the dynamic Kirby cover and ravishing Everett interiors attracted readers and established Daredevil as a unique and mature alternative to cosmic adventuring and teenage angst.

Kirby cvr; classic Kirby/Ditko art; 1st app. Watcher (a cornerstone of the Marvel Universe) (4/63)
An unusual treat awaited readers within the pages of this issue, as the lively, kinetic inks of Steve Ditko met the ferocious, muscular figures and layouts of Jack "The King" Kirby. In addition, Lee and Kirby once again upped the ante on strange goings-on by introducing the Watcher, one of the most intriguing meta-creations of the Marvel Silver Age, whose influence over the series' galactic ambitions would only increase as time went on and would lead directly to the legendary Galactus /Surfer saga of later years. For some reason, this is one of the scarcer early FF issues, especially in nice condition.

origin of Fantastic Four; Spider-Man cover; origin of Sub-Mariner & 1st SA app. Atlantis
Expanding the Marvel Universe bit by bit, this annual featured the retelling of the FF origin and the deepening of the tug-of-war between the imperious Prince Namor and our surface-dwelling heroes. Whether this appearance was meant to build interest in the Spider-Man title, or meant to draw Spider readers into the Fantastic Four orbit isn't certain, but it's one more example of Lee and Kirby's determination to create a bustling, big world for their new heroes to play in, and for readers to become addicted to.

Kirby cvr; 1st app. Dr. Strange by Steve Ditko; 1st Paste-Pot Pete and Wizard team-up
Circle 8 Copy
Waiting inside this issue, unbeknownst to young readers, was the Master of Black Magic, the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange. His tales were brought to life by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, two of the legendary architects of Marvel's Silver Age. It was easily overlooked on the newsstands, as there is no signifier of Doctor Strange's appearance in the issue on its cover illustration by Jack Kirby, which depicts Strange Tales' main protagonist, the Human Torch, facing off against his nemesis Paste-Pot Pete. The surprise introduction of Earth's sole defender from magical and mystical threats made this issue a sleeper hit. With the success of Benedict Cumberbatch as the good doctor in the Doctor Strange movie and his upcoming appearance in Thor Ragnorak and Avengers Infinity War, this book is sure to reach new heights in popularity!

Strange Tales issues have been heating up in popularity over the past few years, and due to the influx of new Marvel movie announcements, it has been increasingly difficult to keep this issue in stock in any grade. This is one of the toughest Silver Age key issues to find, likely due to a small print run, but, that hasn't stopped collectors from snapping up copies as quickly as they can.

1st Captain America since Golden Age (spoiler: it's the Acrobat in disguise); 3rd Dr. Strange
In a clever bait-and-switch tactic used to gauge interest in the return of World War II's personification of American might, Stan Lee called on Jack Kirby to cagily revive Captain America, without actually committing to the return of the hero, in case audiences rejected the potentially lucrative character. Placing the modern Torch's nemesis the Acrobat into the familiar red-white-and-blue costume, Lee and Kirby could have their cake and eat it too, teasing Golden Age fans with a cover image that could have been used for a late-period Marvel Mystery issue, while still providing younger readers their young new hero and a twist that assured them that maybe the old guard wouldn't have to come back after all. Lee needn't have worried -- readers went nuts for the fake Cap, making the return of the real Cap virtually assured, and paving the way for the legendary Avengers #4. Also of note is the idea that Captain America would be reduced to making appearances at car shows -- shades of the "celebrity zoos" that now anchor nearly every comic convention!

This issue is rife with first appearances that shaped the Marvel Universe. The spy agency SHIELD and the villainous Hydra debut as the representative forces of good and evil. Sgt. Fury is called to be the leader of SHIELD and transforms into the infamous Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD, complete with his first round of clones! We even get to see the Helicarrier for the first time. Marvel has built a formidable empire in film and television that heavily features SHIELD as the puppet masters behind many of the costumed heroes we've come to know and love. This formative issue truly set the stage for everything to come in Marvel's long, storied history.

Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Iron Man (Tony Stark) (3/63)
Realizing the growing Marvel audience was composed primarily of hip, and largely left-leaning high-school students and collegians, Stan Lee challenged himself to create a hero who would be the embodiment of everything the counterculture was railing against, and still elicit sympathy from readers. Thus, Tony Stark was born as an older, hard-drinking, playboy millionaire. Iron Man quickly became a cult favorite whose popularity has only grown over the years.

The origin story of Iron Man is one deeply rooted in the Vietnam War era. Tony Stark, a weapons designer, is brought in to help the U.S. government in their efforts to combat the Vietcong, whose guerilla tactics make the American military approach of bigger and badder seem obsolete in the steamy jungles of Southeast Asia. While conducting a test, Stark is mortally wounded by a booby trap and taken captive. While imprisoned, Stark constructs a suit of armor that contains an array of gadgets and firepower that also slows the approach of a piece of shrapnel inching inexorably towards his heart. Voila, Iron Man is born ready to do battle with the forces of Communism and other evils around the globe.
