    Savage Tales #1 (Marvel, 1971) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. While much has been written about the near-simultaneous debuts of Marvel's Man-Thing and DC's Swamp Thing, it should be noted that Man-Thing was the first to appear, and his origin and first appearance is in this very magazine. This black-and-white "adult" issue, which was not subject to the Comics Code, also has the first Conan comic story to appear outside of the main Conan the Barbarian title (with art by Barry Smith). The remaining artists are heavy-hitters one and all, with John Buscema (the cover and a Ka-Zar story), Gray Morrow, Gene Colan, and John Romita Sr. all contributing. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $225. CGC census 7/05: 6 in 9.6, 2 higher.
