classic Thor vs. Silver Surfer cover (2/68)It's a perfect pairing: Marvel's two most otherworldly heroes pitched in battle against one another against a blacklight psychedelic-style background. Never let it be said that Marvel didn't know its audience. This classic throwdown is a perennial favorite of Silver Age Marvel collectors, and is unusually scarce due to its low print run and square bound pressing (leading to higher numbers of damaged or misprinted copies). As a result, issues tend to sell for well above Overstreet value, as collectors vie for the few remaining copies of this action-packed classic.
'The Michelangelo of comics'. Buscema was one of the mainstays of Marvel Comics during its 1960s and 1970s heyday, best known for his run on the The Avengers and The Silver Surfer, and for over 200 stories featuring the sword-and-sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian. In addition, he penciled at least one issue of nearly every major Marvel title, including long runs on two of the company's top books, Fantastic Four and Thor.
