    Strange Tales #89 (Marvel, 1961) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. This issue is tied for the highest-graded copy of #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. The #47 book on Overstreet's list of Top 50 Silver Age Comics. Only three copies top this example on CGC's census for the issue. We expect to see nearly three times the Guide value for this book, when it hits the auction block. Overstreet 2019 VF 8.0 value = $2,335; VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,268. CGC census 3/20: 6 in 8.5, 3 higher.
