    Strange Tales #89 (Marvel, 1961) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. This is the highest-graded copy of issue #89 that we have ever offered, and it appears that no CGC copy above VF+ 8.5 has ever been offered at public auction! Of course, it's the first appearance of the ferocious Fin Fang Foom, with art by Jack Kirby, Dick Ayers, and Steve Ditko. Currently only three copies top this example on CGC's census for the issue. We expect to see near three times the Guide value for this book, when it hits the auction block. Overstreet 2018 VF 8.0 value = $2,277; VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,139. CGC census 2/19: 5 in 8.5, 3 higher.
