Journey Into Mystery #83 Don/Maggie Thompson Collection pedigree (Marvel, 1962) CGC NM- 9.2 White pages. Arguably the most desirable comic of the Don and Maggie Thompson books offered in this catalog, though there are certainly many other worthy contenders. One of the Silver Age's greatest issues has been gaining even more stature in recent years. Only 10 years ago, it was still outside Overstreet's Top 10 Silver Age Comics list -- now it's solidly in sixth place and gaining on #5, the first issue of The Amazing Spider-Man! It's always been one of the harder Marvel Silver Age "keys" to find in high-grade, and this copy goes the extra mile with white pages. Jack Kirby's memorable cover highlights the origin and first appearance of Thor (Dr. Don Blake). Kirby and Steve Ditko art provide interior art. Overstreet 2013 NM- 9.2 value = $50,000. CGC census 11/13: 8 in 9.2, 4 higher. From the Don and Maggie Thompson Collection.
