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.


The future looks very bright for this important Marvel key, the expectations over the MCU’s reboot of the Fantastic Four are sure to herald one of the major events for comic fans worldwide. Anticipation is at a fever pitch and anyone who has a copy of the First Family of Marvel’s premiere is sure to see the value of this book shoot up. This VG/F copy presents a strong color palette and is in solid condition for its grade. While there are some telltale signs of wear and Marvel chipping about the perimeter of the cover, the iconic central image retains its punch these sixty years later. If you don’t own this comic, now is the time to act before prices inevitably rise once again.
