    Tales of Suspense #39 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VG 4.0 Off-white pages. After the introduction over the previous 16 months of such groundbreaking superheroes from Marvel as Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Thor, Ant-Man, and Hulk, this title finally introduced one of its own with this issue. Naturally, Jack Kirby was tapped to do the cover, and the nearly equally veteran Don Heck was enlisted for the interior story. Of all the Marvel Silver Age keys, for some reason this one seems to be the most elusive in high grade. Iron Man is one of the greatest creations of the 1960s, and here is a rare chance to acquire his first appearance in fantastic condition. This key is due for a significant price hike in the next price guide, so you'd better get this one right now. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $316; FN 6.0 value = $948.
