DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
ow/white pgs; QES Certified: impressive prime focal area, sharp right edge with no chipping, deep color strike (red, green & grey)

Microsoft Copy
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 is the comic that kickstarted the modern Marvel Universe. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby came together to reinvent the superhero comic book, giving rise to countless other great characters and properties including Silver Surfer, Black Panther, Spider-Man, and even The Avengers. Very few comics are more historically significant than Fantastic Four #1. This QES-certified copy earned a 7.5 CGC Universal Grade, with off-white to white pages, the impressive prime focal area, the sharp right edge with no chipping, and deep color strike have been noted as the standout qualities of this handsome copy. With the Fantastic Four confirmed to be joining the MCU soon, all of the team’s key issues have been skyrocketing. The MCU is the highest-grossing and most-popular film franchise of all time and has led to immeasurable growth in the collectibles market. What will this book be worth after a Fantastic Four reboot launches?

Overstreet Guide 2022 VF- (7.5) value = $46,750.
