    Strange Tales #135 (Marvel, 1965) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. The first appearance of S.H.I.E.L.D. is looking like an even bigger key now that Nick Fury glimpsed the big screen in the recent "Iron Man" motion picture. The purple background makes this key issue tough to come by in 9.2 and above. Jack Kirby's cover art is irresistible here, and note the presence of Hydra, the nefarious organization that also premiered here as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s opposite numbers. The Dr. Strange collector needs this one too, as the mystic fellow was co-featured in the book. Don't yield... (you know the rest). Overstreet 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $250. CGC census 1/09: 14 in 9.4, 2 higher. From the Capital City Collection.
