    Description

    Journey Into Mystery #83 (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. This is one of the brightest stars from the complete original-owner Marvel run we're featuring in our auction, a superb copy of the issue that presented 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 wasn't fully developed yet, but that didn't affect the great origin yarn from the classic team of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the prime architects of the Marvel Age. Steve Ditko and Don Heck provided art for backup features in this issue that's currently #6 on Overstreet's list of Top 50 Silver Age Comics. Overstreet 2018 VF/NM 9.0 value = $48,500; NM- 9.2 value = $80,000. CGC census 2/19: 16 in 9.0, 19 higher. From the Black Mask Collection.
