    Description

    Journey Into Mystery #83 (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. This is one of the key Silver Age Marvel issues, the origin and first appearance of Thor. The early version of the character wasn't as polished as the later God of Thunder (his noble manner of speaking hadn't developed yet, nor had his muscles for that matter), but a great yarn resulted nonetheless. The story was plotted by Stan Lee, scripted by Stan's brother Larry Lieber, and of course drawn by the great Jack Kirby, who also drew the cover. By the way, there are a couple of "mystery" backup features more in keeping with the title of the issue -- they have art by Steve Ditko and Don Heck, respectively. Overstreet 2005 VF/NM 9.0 value = $7,082; NM- 9.2 value = $10,000. CGC census 12/05: 9 in 9.0, 6 higher.
