    Journey Into Mystery #83 (Marvel, 1962) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. It's been nine years since we last offered a 9.4 copy of this key, and even that one lacked the "white pages" designation this one bears. And of course, the first appearance of Thor carries much more significance in the pop culture landscape than it did back then, since the character has starred in three movies, including of course two features devoted to him!
    The census figures below show how tough this issue is to acquire in this grade. And we couldn't help but notice how many top-flight Silver Age collections we've offered that had any number of other keys in very high grade but only a good-not-great copy of this issue.
    You can see our image for yourself, but the thing we would add since we have it in hand is that the book looks very fresh -- and that's saying a lot since the cover colors of this one can quickly turn pretty dingy after not too much handling.
    The issue is one of Overstreet's ten most valuable Silver Age books. The cover is by Jack Kirby, with art by Kirby and Steve Ditko. Overstreet 2014 NM- 9.2 value = $55,000. CGC census 11/14: 5 in 9.4, 1 higher. From the Loveland Collection.
