    Journey Into Mystery #83 (Marvel, 1962) CBCS VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. August 1962 was a very good month for origins and first appearances at Marvel Comics. The Fantastic Four and the Incredible Hulk had burst upon the comics scene in November 1961 and May 1962 respectively, both with Jack Kirby covers and interior art. Next to come would be Thor, in this very issue, and Spider-Man, in Amazing Fantasy #15, out the same month. In classic Mr. Meek-becomes-Herculean-superhero-fashion, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby introduce another character that would help propel the Marvel Age into the future. Unlike numerous other ventures by the "King," Jack would stay with Thor for more than 100 issues, and boy, are we glad! Here's where it all began, an issue that's a must-have for the true Marvelite. Currently tied for the #5 position on Overstreet's list of Top 50 Silver Age Comics. Overstreet 2015 VF 8.0 value = $14,000. CGC census 3/16: 22 in 7.5, 66 higher.
