    Description

    Journey Into Mystery #85 (Marvel, 1962) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. Most collectors don't even know what this looks like in NM-! Overstreet and CGC note that this issue has the first appearances of Loki and Heimdall, but that's only part of the story. It's also the first appearance of Asgard itself, as well as the first mention (and brief appearance) of Odin! Jack Kirby is the cover artist. Could any self-respecting Thor fan pass on this? Currently this issue is ranked #47 on Overstreet's Top 50 Silver Age Comics list. The backup story features Steve Ditko art. Overstreet 2018 NM- 9.2 value = $7,500. CGC census 2/19: 9 in 9.2, 10 higher. From the Black Mask Collection.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
