    Description

    Iron Man #1 (Marvel, 1968) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Surprisingly enough, we've offered just one other copy this nice (a 9.8 in our last auction) of this milestone book in the past two years. Iron Man had first appeared in Tales of Suspense #39 some six years prior, starring in that title until he finally got his own. Gene Colan challenged Jack Kirby for dynamic first covers with this one, and also furnished the interior art, with assistance from famous EC alumni Johnny Craig. The origin of Iron Man is retold in a story that continued from the one-shot Iron Man and Sub-Mariner #1, which in turn had been continued from the final issue (#99) of TOS. The second wave of Marvel premiere issues which came out in 1968 are still surprisingly affordable, but values are going up! Overstreet 2007 NM- 9.2 value = $635. CGC census 1/08: 36 in 9.6, 19 higher.
