Key Comics Collection
Highest GradedLaunching one of the main storylines of the X-Men ouvre, issue #14 introduces Bolivar Trask's creations, the Sentinels, into X-Men lore, and the series would never be the same. Persecution due to their mutant status has been a long-running theme in the X-Men, one which was the main hook that helped the title grow in popularity. Many readers who felt themselves to be outsiders or downtrodden could instantly relate to the otherness of mutantkind, thereby creating a sense of empathy with these special superheroes. This issue is a landmark in the series, and one every true X-Men fan should own. Art by Kirby, Jay Gavin, and Vince Colletta.
Still the ONLY copy to ever grade above 9.6, this X-Men #14 from the Key Comics Collection astounds with its immaculate edges and a fully saturated red background that's earned it a QES-certification.

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.
