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.

Here it is, the dawn of the Marvel Age, presented in a grade that meets at junction between condition and price. The colors remain fresh and the binding is nice and tight, with spot-on centering, this is a perfect copy for an investor who is building a portfolio, but has yet to reach the upper rungs of the hobby. Everyone knows the MCU is just waiting for the right moment to announce the reboot of the FF franchise, and once they do, Ka-Boom! This book will launch into the stratosphere again (hopefully it will avoid those cosmic rays this time) and anyone owning a copy of this important key will reap the benefits.
