Kirby cvr/art; origin & 1st app. Fantastic Four; 1st Mole Man; the Marvel Age begins here (11/61) Comic Book Impact rating of 10 (CBI)
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 near future, 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.

Fantastic Four #1 marks the debut of Marvel's first superhero team and their nemesis the Mole Man, as well as announcing the beginning of Marvel's Silver Age renaissance. Lee and Kirby come together here to create a marvelous yarn for the ages. This copy earned a 4.5 Universal Grade from CGC, with cream to off-white pages. The white background on this book is quick to show defects, and very few are visible here. All the beloved members of the FF are in top form fighting together on this classic cover. With the Fantastic Four confirmed to be joining the MCU soon, collectors and investors are eagerly watching this book. This is an all-time key comic and is poised to go up in value as audiences worldwide fall in love with the Fantastic Four once again.
