    Description

    Marvel Comics #1 (Timely, 1939) CGC Apparent FN+ 6.5 Extensive (P) Cream to off-white pages. More often found with restoration than without these days, this book is a must-have in any grade, and this is a very solid copy with strong eye appeal. Filled with firsts; the first Timely comic and thus the first Marvel comic, it also has the first appearances of the Human Torch, Ka-Zar, and the Angel, as well as the first newsstand appearance of the Sub-Mariner! Wow! The cover is by Frank R. Paul. And while no longer the listed by Overstreet as the "most valuable comic," thanks to Action Comics #1, it's still certainly the biggest book for Marvelites. Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $23,000; VG 4.0 value = $46,000; FN 6.0 value = $69,000.
