    Description

    Strange Tales #101 (Marvel, 1962) CGC NM- 9.2 Cream to off-white pages. Isn't it nice to see this one in high grade for a change? This is the second nicest copy that we have ever offered of the first solo story ever for the Human Torch (well, the Johnny Storm incarnation anyway). We recall one comic guru making the point, "if the cover said Human Torch #1, what would this issue be worth?" Jack Kirby provided the cover art, and the origin of the Fantastic Four is retold inside. Steve Ditko art. Overstreet 2015 NM- 9.2 value = $4,500. CGC census 3/16: 6 in 9.2, 7 higher.
