    Description

    Fantastic Four #3 Don/Maggie Thompson Collection pedigree (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. We've only ever offered three nicer copies than this one in almost a decade and a half of comic auctions! It's the issue in which the Fantastic Four became more of a traditional superhero team, donning costumes for the first time, establishing a headquarters, and coming up with their distinctive Fantasti-Car. Stan Lee's original idea for a team, totally different than what had gone before, involved their not wearing costumes at all, as an extension of the fact that they didn't bother with secret identities. Thank goodness he reconsidered, as the outfits and gadgets became an essential aspect of the group. All except for the Thing's costume, complete with mask, that lasted about three panels! Of course, those great visuals are courtesy of co-creator Jack Kirby. Overstreet 2013 VF 8.0 value = $3,000; VF/NM 9.0 value = $6,500. CGC census 11/13: 23 in 8.5, 19 higher. From the Don and Maggie Thompson Collection.
