    Fantastic Four #48 (Marvel, 1966) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. It's a hot issue, and there's good reason for that! Here is the first appearances of Galactus and the Silver Surfer, and the beginning of a classic story line that was followed for years. All that and the Watcher, too!. Jack Kirby cover and story art, of course. Overstreet 2010 VF/NM 9.0 value = $938; NM- 9.2 value = $1,400. CGC census 1/11: 109 in 9.0, 252 higher.

    More Information:

    One of the key issues in the storied Marvel flagship title's run. Stan Lee could have gushed "This One Has It All!" on the cover, but the simplicity of the iconic Jack Kirby cover is more than enough! The issue had the first appearances of both Galactus and the Silver Surfer, as well as appearances by the Watcher and the Inhumans. If you're serious about the Marvel Age, this one has got to be on your want list - it's still affordable (but going up!) and ranks in importance with all but the earliest issues of Marvel's important titles. Jack Kirby also did the interior artwork.
