    Description

    Journey Into Mystery #85 (Marvel, 1962) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. This issue features the third appearance of Thor and the first appearance of the Norse gods' estranged half-brother, Loki. Tom Hiddleston's charismatic portrayal of Loki in the first Avengers movie, all of the Thor movies, as well as his prominent role in Thor: Ragnarok and next year's Avengers: Infinity War have no doubt contributed to the significant rise in value of this key issue. A CGC 9.4 copy of this issue sold in our August 2017 Signature Auction for $31,070 -- more than doubling a previously recorded sale from 2014! Also features the first appearance of the kingdom of Asgard, Heimdall, and the first cameo appearance by Odin. Jack Kirby cover and art and a backup feature with art by Steve Ditko. This is only the second 9.4 copy we've seen, one of a mere handful of issues we've been able to offer with a grade above 9.0, and one of only six in 9.4, with only four graded higher. Overstreet 2017 NM- 9.2 value = $7,300. CGC census 11/17: 6 in 9.4, 4 higher.
