    Fantastic Four #1 (Marvel, 1961) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white to white pages. The Marvel Age started here, with this very issue! Ant-Man, The Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Spider-Man would soon follow (in that order), all within the next two years, but this was Marvel's Big Bang! From the minds and artistry of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby came the origin and first appearance of the Fantastic Four, Marvel's first superhero team -- Mr. Fantastic, The Thing, Invisible Girl, and the Human Torch. Also featured is the origin and first appearance of Mole Man. We have only offered one other Universal label copy in a grade this high in the past two years. It's currently ranked as the #3 book on Overstreet's list of Top 50 Silver Age Comics, and is one of the fastest-appreciating issues in the Top 10. Overstreet 2020 FN 6.0 value = $16,800; VF 8.0 value = $42,000. CGC census 1/21: 52 in 6.5, 118 higher.
