    Description

    Journey Into Mystery #83 (Marvel, 1962) CGC FN+ 6.5 White pages. The Mighty Thor, God of Thunder, made his first appearance in this very issue, and while the concept of zero-to-hero wasn't new, the mythological elements presented here gave the character a little lagniappe (something extra). Jack Kirby and Don Heck drew the cover as well as illustrating the origin story, which was a collaboration between brothers Stan Lee and Larry Lieber (Lee). Sticklers for comics living up to their titles will be pleased to note that there are also two "mystery"-type backup features, drawn by Heck and Steve Ditko. Currently this issue sits at the #6 spot on Overstreet's list of Top 20 Silver Age Comics. Overstreet 2014 FN 6.0 value = $4,200; VF 8.0 value = $13,000. CGC census 5/15: 46 in 6.5, 123 higher.
