Stan Lee kept his fingers on the pulse of the streets during the turbulence of 1960's America as he masterfully addressed topics of popular concern in the comics he created. In an inspired move, Lee and Jack Kirby brought Marvel's very first black superhero to life, T'Challa, the Black Panther. To say that this was history in the making would be an understatement. Considering the unbridled success of the character's silver screen career, this comic, the Black Panther's very first appearance, is sure to be a prime focus of collectors. The response to Black Panther's entry into the MCU's film roster has prompted a spike in sales of Panther titles. With first appearances being the most valuable, this comic has seen a meteoric rise in value over the last few years.
On this crisp cover, you can discern the Panther's silhouette amidst the background contrasting against the colorful Fantastic Four in their flanking maneuver. The image of T'Challa leaping from the nightscape is preserved wonderfully on this copy where subtle details may be lost on a lower grade example. With the coming expansion of the Black Panther franchise, this book is sure to continue rising in value.

Overstreet Guide 2019 NM- (9.2) value = $4,600.
