    Description

    Marvel Comics #1 (Timely, 1939) CGC VG 4.0 Cream to off-white pages. Marvel/Timely followed DC into the Golden Age of Comics some 18 months after Action Comics #1, but this historic book has rivaled its competitor in demand, value, and significance for decades, at times over the years even being valued higher than the book Superman made famous. Timely's Big Three superheroes; the Sub-Mariner by Bill Everett, the Human Torch by Carl Burgos, and the Angel by Paul Gustavson make their first appearances in the issue, the dynamic cover for which was created by pulp artist Frank R. Paul. One of the few books that single-handedly defines the eyebrow-raising factor of a collection could be yours! Overstreet 2003 VG 4.0 value = $37,500.
