white pages; Stan Lee Signature Series
Kirby cvr/art; origin & 1st app. Fantastic Four; 1st Mole Man; the Marvel Age begins here (11/61) Comic Book Impact rating of 10 (CBI)This is the book that launched the Silver Age of Comics and the Marvel Age of storytelling, courtesy of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's extraordinary vision. This classic collectible also has the thrilling origin story providing the first appearances of Mister Fantastic, the Thing, Human Torch, and Invisible Girl--along with the debut of the tragically evil Mole Man. The pop-culture passion for Fantastic Four is now set to get even more heated, with excitement building over Marvel Studios finally recovering the film rights to the company's first super team!
In recent years the signature series market has exploded, drawing in new collectors attracted to the charm and novelty of autographed keys, and older collectors whose interest in comics may have waned over time. It's especially nice having a significant Marvel issue signed by the walking personification of the Marvel Age, Stan "the Man" Lee, and this attractive 6.5 copy of FF #1 stands out from the pack thanks to the inscription from its co-creator. Investors and collectors have found that having a comic signed can help it break out from the pack, making it more attractive to potential buyers and adding a little "zing.” Not that this clean, unrestored copy with white pages needs any help -- but, certainly, it makes it all the more special and all the more likely to attract bids and compliments in this Event Auction. A Fantastic Four #1 6.5 sold for $45,600 in November 2022, and that copy did not even have a signature by Stan Lee.
Overstreet Guide 2023 FN+ (6.5) value = $36,575.
