Item Description

 SUPERIOR SILVER-AGE SURFER COMIC! The Silver Surfer takes on the Inhumans! THIS IS THE FINAL 'GIANT-SIZE' ISSUE OF THIS ORIGINAL SERIES, AND IT'S A REAL SLEEPER AS IT'S A HISTORIC SILVER-AGE APPEARANCE OF 'Dr. FRANKENSTEIN' AND HIS 'NEW' MONSTER, A DUPLICATE SILVER SURFER, AND IT HAS THE DEBUT OF 'BORGO' ALONG WITH CAMEO APPEARANCES OF FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER AND SHALLA BAL AND DOCTOR DOOM.   THIS IS THE BEST-OF-THE-BEST FOR US MERE MORTALS, AS IT IS THE SINGLE FINEST SIGNED EXAMPLE ON EARTH.  AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE BEST SIGNATURE SERIES COPY TO EVER HIT THE MARKET IS A MERE NM- 9.2, SO THIS ONE REALLY IS A STAND-OUT, AT TWO FULL RUNGS HIGHER THAN THE PREVIOUS 'BEST EVER' COPY!   VISUALLY, THIS GEM IS SUITABLE FOR EVEN THE MOST PICKY FAN.   THIS ISSUE BOASTS A GREAT COVER BY BIG JOHN BUSCEMA WHICH IS A TREAT TO BEHOLD IN THIS SUPERLATIVE STATE. THIS COMIC HAS ALL THE HALLMARKS OF KEEPER, WITH THE PHENOMENAL GLOSS AND BLINDING-BRIGHT COLORS AND LACK OF ARRIVAL DATE OR OTHER NOTATIONS;  PLUS NOTE THE SUPERB CENTERING AND ALIGNMENT, AND THE FACT THAT THE COVER IS NOT DINGY IN THE CENTER OF THE BACK COVER LIKE SOME HIGH-GRADE EXAMPLES.  EXPECT TO BE THRILLED WITH THIS IRREPLACEABLE SPECIMEN, MUCH LIKE MANY OF THE OTHER EXCEPTIONAL MARVEL COMICS WE ARE NOW OFFERING!  I've always wanted my high-grade comics to have great cut and alignment, things that the certification companies scarcely consider when grading.  So if you too are extra picky, and want copies that are not only well preserved and of exceptional structural quality, but also boast a deep color strike with accurate registration and sharp corners, and somehow they didn't pick up any ugly ink overspray or other significant visual flaws during the distribution process either, then you crave books of this caliber and you already know how seldom these opportunities arise.  This minty example is certainly the finest copy of this tough final issue we've ever brought to market. IF YOU ARE A LONG-TERM COLLECTOR OF HIGH GRADE VINTAGE MARVEL COMICS THEN YOU KNOW THAT THESE DOUBLE-SIZE EARLY NUMBERS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN EXTREMELY TOUGH BOOKS TO FIND IN VERY HIGH GRADE SHAPE, AND WITH THE ADVENT OF COMICS GUARANTY COMPANY THIS PHENOMENON CAN BE CONFIRMED WITH THE POPULATION REPORT. This book is well known to fans and dealers alike, as an original-team issue featuring the sky-rider of the spaceways battling against the malevolent Doctor Frankenstein and Borgo.  This one is a treat to behold when it's unblemished by such pesky detractors as noteworthy creases or spine-stresses.  The Silver Surfer is a household name around the globe, thanks in part to the Fantastic Four film he appeared in, and the DVD sales and all the toys and videogames and statues and animation and action-figures and clothing and plethora of other licensed merchandise...  It doesn't get much more "Blue Chip" than this!    This incredible original first-print comic-book WILL find a new home, as the asking price is LOW and there is NO RESERVE!  ALWAYS SCARCE, SHARP SPECIMENS OF THIS THICK SQUARE-BOUND ORIGINAL SERIES ISSUE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SOUGHT OUT, YET COPIES ABOVE 9.2 ARE RARELY SIGHTED, AND THEY SEEM ALMOST EXTINCT, ABOVE NM 9.4.  THIS IS THE BEST AND THE ONLY CGC 9.6 EXAMPLE ON THE PLANET THAT IS AUTOGRAPHED BY STAN 'THE MAN' LEE, AND IT BESTS THE PREVIOUS FINEST SIGNED COPY TO SURFACE BY TWO FULL RUNGS, SO THIS IS TRULY FOR THE SUPER-COLLECTOR THAT DEMANDS THE BEST-OF-THE-BEST, THAT NO OTHER FAN CAN ATTAIN! This historic comic is a real find in unrestored NM or better shape, as many copies had minute production flaws such as printing creases or Marvel Chipping, while others were read and re-read, time and time again, and with the glossy black and red cover even the tiniest flaws seem magnified.  However, this copy is spectacular, as it's super-clean and there is no noteworthy wear or aging, and it has precise printing registration. And the gloss is excellent, too!  This crushes most of the so-called "Mint" old comics I purchased over the decades back in the pre-CGC era.  Good luck finding this level of eye appeal again in the future, as this beauty boasts deep rich uniform colors and a flat clean appearance, devoid of obvious problems, and the unusually clean bright logo just adds to the allure.  (Our scanner makes it appear that there's lighter areas and hazy patches;  But there are no such cloudy regions and no chips or scratches on the brand-new CGC holder, either.)  We are now offering many superb CGC comics as well as many high-grade unslabbed vintage Marvel comics available via reasonable Fixed Prices, plus rare comic art; And we'll be offering hundreds of other collectable comics in the next few months.  Check out our ebay items regularly!  A lot has happened with Marvel comics in the almost-half-century since this came out, adding more allure to the fabled vintage issues such as this;  so I don't suggest waiting around until these crucial books have gone through the roof....  High-grade specimens of this less-common number are always in demand, but are virtually unseen in the market, in such stellar condition with superior structure like this!   This is an investment that you can show and display proudly, without worrying about damage or degradation of the supple clean bone-white paper, thanks to the benefit of professional Comic Guaranty Corporation encapsulation. With demand that far exceeds supply, premium prices are likely to occur when a certified signed NM+ beauty such as this finally surfaces on ebay for the global market. Great cover colors; And the gloss is phenomenal, which must be seen in person to be appreciated.  If you are a discriminating Marvel collector, serious CGC-graded comics investor, or just a devout Frankie or Surfer collector, and prefer unrestored books without significant flaws, then NOW is your brief window of opportunity.  It looks less appealing in the disappointing picture, with lots of glare and darkness from our scanner,  ~but in person the book looks spectacular and the super bright colors really leap out at you!    The conservative Overall CGC Universal Grade is an incredible Near Mint PLUS; --it looks new from outside the clear plastic CGC case! This extra bright clean copy sports the Gold Signature Series CGC Label;  --And the CGC case is brand-new and has no scuffs or cracks or scratches in the crystal-clear case.  * PEDIGREE QUALITY AUTOGRAPHED SPECIMEN *
