FANTASTIC FOUR# 1 November 1961


Stan Lee Story
Jack Kirby Cover and Interior Art

Origin and 1st Appearance (non costumed) of The Fantastic Four: Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Girl, The Thing, The Human Torch (1st Silver Age Appearance and 1st Appearance since 1954 Golden Age)

Marvel's 1st Superhero Team (Group) since 1940s Golden Age

Origin and 1st Appearance The Mole Man

Fantastic Four# 1 covers are cumulatively GOOD-VG (3.0). Front Cover GOOD (2.0). Back Cover VG-FN (5.0). There is a small semi circular piece missing from the top edge of the Front Cover above the T and the A in the word Fantastic. Both covers grade out to VG- (3.5) but I prefer to be more conservative and grade the covers as GOOD-VG (3.0).

Both covers are detached from the interior but in one piece. No spine split. A genius prior owner completely laminated both covers inside and out.

Interior is off white FN-VF (7.0). There is a small semi circular piece missing from the top edge of the Front Cover above the T and the A in the word Fantastic and into the interior for a few pages. Affects the border and none of the story.

The book is autographed by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby on page 1 top border. The autographs were present when I purchased the book. I did not witness the signatures. Therefore I will not vouch as to their authenticity.

Given the lamination, small piece missing at the top edge of the cover and into the interior for a few pages, uncertainty as to the validity of the autographs and factoring a FN-VF interior with GOOD-VERY GOOD covers, I grade the book as an overall G+ (2.5).
