origin & 1st appearance by Lee & Kirby; COMIC BOOK IMPACT rating of 10 (CBI)
Melding elements of Norse mythology with the by-now-standard superhero tropes of the funny pages, Stan Lee followed up his Jekyll & Hyde-style Hulk with this cosmic, high-camp treasure. The book was initially scripted by Stan's brother Larry (to give the overworked and exhausted Lee some breathing room), and penciled with surprising grace and elegance by Jack Kirby. Another instant favorite, the comic confirmed Lee's Midas touch in the early 1960s as the title soon became the bedrock for Marvel's more theatrical and grandiose styling. In recent years, the character has enjoyed yet another renaissance thanks to Marvel's savvy cinematic exploitation, and this debut appearance, already extremely rare thanks to an unusually low print run, has become in even greater demand as a result.


Journey Into Mystery #83 introduced fans everywhere to the mighty Thor, "The Most Exciting Super-Hero of all Time!!" Stan Lee and Jack Kirby continued their monumental run of iconic heroes with the Thunder God, who would later go on to join the Avengers. This copy earned a 4.5 CGC Universal Grade, with pristine white pages inside. The iconic Jack Kirby cover looks stunning, with only minor spine stress and wear visible over the nearly sixty years since this copy was first printed. Thor has appeared in over a dozen MCU movies at this point, and Chris Hemsworth isn't leaving the role anytime soon! This is a wonderful copy of the first appearance of one of the most popular comic book characters of all time!
