    Description

    The Thing! #15 River City pedigree (Charlton, 1954) CGC VF- 7.5 Cream to off-white pages. If you thought Steve Ditko's career started with Spidey, or even Marvel, take a long look at this amazing cover for Charlton in 1954, one of his first. Ditko also contributed interior artwork on this issue. Proving a point we keep repeating (it's not just hype!); i.e., copies of most pre-code horror titles are difficult to find in grades this nice, CGC's census lists only one copy of issue #15 in a grade higher than "8.5". A pretty reasonable way to go for a practically unique, extremely cool cover by one of the Silver Age's most admired artists. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $511.
