    Description

    Tales of Suspense #39 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM- 9.2 White pages. This copy of old Shellhead's first appearance looks simply amazing in its CGC "suit of armor!" The origin of Iron Man (Tony Stark) is here, as rendered by the inimitable Jack "King" Kirby cover, but that's not all you get... There's also Don Heck interior art, and backup features with Steve Ditko and Gene Colan art! A more-than-stellar copy, with beautiful page quality, this copy ties for the third best we've ever seen of the issue! Overstreet 2013 NM- 9.2 value = $36,000. CGC census 7/13: 13 in 9.2, 21 higher.
