    Description

    Tales of Suspense #39 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. Iron Man makes his dramatic debut in this extremely sought-after Marvel key, and 50 years later the character is still going strong. In more than 13 years of auctioning comics, we here at Heritage have only ever seen five copies of #39 that top the grade of this offering! Jack Kirby provided the memorable cover, and Don Heck handled the interior artwork. This copy is incredibly nice, even by Very Fine+ standards. There is no "Marvel chipping" and the book is clean. Only some minor wear to the spine prevents it from grading even higher. Currently this book is in the #8 spot on Overstreet's list of Top 20 Silver Age Comics, a spot it will not likely be giving up any time soon. Overstreet 2014 VF 8.0 value = $9,000; VF/NM 9.0 value = $21,000. CGC census 5/15: 33 in 8.5, 49 higher.
