VF: 8.0
Pg. 3; Jack Kirby pencils, Chic Stone inks; signed by multiple Marvel artists and Stan Lee; 12.5" x 18.5"; comes with a color xerox of the cover, and a photo of Jack Kirby with fans
Okay, now this is sweet. The page comes framed with an image of Jack "The King" Kirby posing with a pair of young fans, and is signed by a roster of Marvel royalty. From the beloved second FF annual, it features not only a smorgasbord of vintage Thing panels, including our boy Ben handily wrecking a classic car, but also the original FF lineup, PLUS the Fantasticar! Your 10-year-old self wants you to have this precious (and awesome) gift, one that can't help but palpitate the hearts of any true Marvel-ite-iac.

Wouldya look at the hands that this page has passed through over the years -- Neal Adams, Gene Colan, John Buscema, Marie Severin, John Romita, Marv Wolfman, Len Wein, and even Stan "The Man" Lee, all have signed this incredible piece of Marvel history. Original Silver Age comic art can be a solid investment, sure, but it's incredible pieces like this that get the fanboy in any collector all giddy, and transform collectible investments into treasured heirlooms. And, yes, it's even more awesome in person.

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. 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.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st app. of the Skrulls; 2nd Fantastic Four
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. This first appearance of the Skrulls hints at the grandeur and go-for-broke glee of the Marvel Universe to come.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st SA Sub-Mariner (5/62)
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 cvr/art; 3rd SA Sub-Mariner app.
It's typical of the hard-bitten, cynical world of Silver Age Marvel to show the heroes right on the cover of their own book being turned out of their digs and jeered by crowds. It's also a sign of the clever way Stan Lee and Jack Kirby could turn everyday drabness into imaginative gold, almost as though they were thinking big by going small. It had certainly had never been tried before, so readers were turned on by the originality and audacity of Marvel's ideas, and stuck around for the strong storytelling and attention-grabbing art. This is only the third appearance of the Sub-Mariner in the Silver Age, and Lee and Kirby have already transformed him completely from a brooding romantic demigod into a snarling, almost completely adversarial despot. Readers loved it.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st Hulk vs Thing battle
A match made in adolescent boy heaven, it was only a matter of time before Lee and Kirby took their two most popular creations and set them against each other to see what would happen. The result, unsurprisingly, was a smash success, leading to nearly annual throwdowns between the two misunderstood behemoths. This first contretemps occurred while the nascent Hulk was still in his initial, reasonably intelligent phase, making him an even more formidable opponent for the streetwise scrapping Thing. The reduction of the green goliath in later years to a monosyllabic brute made the recurring battles less and less challenging and more like a standard-issue monster mash, but this classic first meeting still retains its punch and excitement, and fans young and old still feel that special tingle when encountering this classic image.

Kirby cvr/art; classic Hulk vs. Thing cover; 2nd SA Captain America app. (cameo)
Never let it be said that Marvel wouldn't give the people what they wanted. It's understandable that young readers would instantly gravitate to the two misshapen beasts starring on this cover. The Hulk is a perfect personification of the uncontrollable rage, emotional turmoil, and alienation felt by any growing boy fighting through hormones and the general pains of childhood, while the Thing appealed to any kid whose own body seemed to be clumsily betraying them through the pains and troubles of growing up. Pit these two beasts against each other and you're guaranteed to sell out on day one, as Marvel happily discovered and continued to exploit throughout the Silver and Bronze Age, almost annually. Here, the showdowns had not yet exhausted their potential, and you can still feel the joy of inventiveness and novelty bursting forth in Kirby's typically epic cover image.

Kirby cvr/art; early X-Men x-over
Where once the Fantastic Four had been used to shore up interest in the inaugural issue of Amazing Spider-Man, now the X-Men were being drafted into the FF title itself to help push them on Marvel fans who might not have seen their mag. This early X-Men appearance also allowed for Jack Kirby to show off his dizzying ability to maneuver massive casts of characters through bizarre settings and situations without ever once losing the plot or the audience's patience. The gambit must have worked, as the X-Men slowly built up a loyal cult following that continued through to their eventual break-through success in the Bronze era.

For decades, comic book fans have been talking about mutants and metas but now we are about to enter the world of the Inhumans, a fan favorite since this very issue, the Inhumans are starting to garner widespread popularity as the spotlight shines. Many readers are starting to investigate the Inhumans and their awesome legacy. Intrigue and betrayal, much like what we see in Game of Thrones, is prevalent, but on a cosmic level. With the mysteriously silent Black Bolt, his wife Medusa, and their mighty pet, Lockjaw leading the colony in the Blue Area of the moon, the Inhumans are sure to become as popular as all the other Marvel heroes we are assaulted with regularly, and rightly so.

classic Kirby cvr/art; Silver Surfer vs. Galactus
The Surfer was famously dropped into his first appearance by Jack Kirby without warning his collaborator, Stan Lee, who was first bemused then intrigued by this bizarre and inventive new addition to the rapidly ballooning FF galaxy. By his third appearance in this landmark issue, Lee had solidified a tragic, Shakespearean arc for the new character, pitting him against his galactic master with the universe at stake and gracing him with tortured inner monologues and a questing spirit. The proof of the character's near-instantaneous acceptance with Marvel's increasingly college-aged readership is seen on this classic cover, where the upstart antagonist completely steals the focus from the book's supposed leads. Note the Thing's bewilderment at this unexpected turn of events.
