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 went one better when 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, letting young readers 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, we are certain that the third time will be a charm. Silver Age Marvel keys like this one are always in high demand and there is no sign of letting up soon.



This FN+ copy of a milestone comic, one which looms large in the Marvel Age, is in a very respectable state of preservation, the white background is clean and shiny, the interior pages are white, and the overall presentation is bright and crisp. This issue bears iconic imagery that Kirby sent spinning off into comic book mythology. Get this book before the MCU reboot or you'll wish you did.



Overstreet Guide 2019 FN+ (6.5) value = $22,000.
