    Black Knight #3 (Atlas, 1955) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. One of the best covers by Joe Maneely, whose death at a young age prevented him from joining Kirby and Ditko as a household name among comic fans. A modern version of the Black Knight will appear in Marvel's upcoming Eternals movie, boosting interest in these early appearances. This is the highest-graded copy certified by CGC to date; it sold for double Guide at Heritage eight years ago, and likely will fetch an even higher multiple this time around. Overstreet 2019 VF 8.0 value = $454; VF/NM 9.0 value = $777. CGC census 7/20: 1 in 8.5, none higher.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 1059617002 and purchase grader's notes if available.

    More Information:

    One of those Atlas titles that's a hard find in nice grade, let alone the grades we're offering in this sale of the complete five issue run. We believe this to be the finest set of the run ever offered at one time. The title's had its devoted followers, but is now red hot, with the lead character, played by Kit Harington of Game of Thrones fame, slated to appear in the upcoming Marvel Comics Universe movie The Eternals.
