DESCRIPTION
white pgs, QES Certified: Criteria met: beautiful spine + deep color strike (red, yellow & green); only 1 higher
Herb Trimpe cvr/art; 1st full app. of Wolverine; the Action #1 of the Bronze Age (11/74)
Born of a desire to diversify the Marvel roster by adding international heroes, and inspired by the feisty, ill-tempered animal that is his namesake, Wolverine quickly became the breakout character of Marvel's Bronze Age. This book is a demarcation between what came before and what comes after, as this dark, brooding anti-hero flew in the face of all previous conventions and came to define the cynical, haunted heroes of the Bronze and Copper Age. Hands down, this is the best-known of all Bronze Age keys, and the first Bronze book to break the $10,000 sales mark. With an X-Men reboot planned, this is a comic every collector should add to their checklist.


When you’ve been in the comic business as long as we have, you will get to see many copies of this top Bronze Age book, but it is not often you will come across an example this bright and clean, even at a 9.8 grade, there is an exceptional quality about the color strike on this QES-certified book, every small detail is impeccable, the purple mountaintops in the background are sublime, and the hues of the Hulk’s emerald torso are as exemplary as the flesh tones of Wolverine’s arms. Add in the solid, balanced red wash that gives off a glow and you have a truly beautiful copy of one of the most sought after comics around. Bronze Age keys were once easily affordable, but as time goes on, certain milestones are hitting heights previously only ascended by Silver and Gold books. If you are a serious investment collector and have not yet obtained a copy of this book, you need to take the plunge, and this is a perfect opportunity.
