Tales of Suspense #39
First appearance of Iron Man, March 1963 Origin issue
Jack Kirby cover, Don Heck art.
CGC Universal Grade VF 8.0 off-white pages.
CGC serial number is 0029085004.
This is an absolutely beautiful comic! No restoration.
Overall, this is an extremely clean looking book. It is certainly worth more then I am willing to let it go for, but times are tough.
There are no serious spine-breaking stresses and no tears on the top or bottom edges either on the back or front of this absolutely beautiful book.
I am not a professional comic dealer, but I do not see any dust shadows on the back cover; All of my descriptions are consistent with the fact that the CGC Universal Grade people made absolutely no mention of any of the above issues that I have described as NOT contained on this book. Having said this, I am not a professional, but believe that a CGC Universal Grade of VF 8.0 speaks for itself. CGC notes a small indent at the bottom of the back of the spine.This book is being sold solely based on this objective grade system by CGC and will be sold "as is".
