Age Collection now in our Quincy store!
Fantastic Four #1 and
1st Dr. Strange still available.
FF #1 may be THE single most important comic in Marvel History!
Why? Because itís the birth of the Silver Age of Marvel Super- Heroes.
Without this historic comic we may never have witnessed Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor or The X-Men.
This copy is in rough condition but complete and affordable to collectors. Itís currently in the Quincy store if seriously interested.
Plus how can we forget our own Master of the Mystic Arts Doctor Strange? This key 1st appearance is not easy to find since Strange Tales had a lower print run compared to other Marvel comics from the same era.
Still over 700 vintage Marvel and DC comics from the 1960ís and some 1970ís Bronze comics.
If youíre interested in any comics from the list and canít make it to the Quincy store, ask your friendly local NEC manager to arrange transfer of any specific comics to your store.
here for a complete list of items.
Spirit Section #1
Featuring the 1st Appearance Of The SPIRIT
By Will Eisner!
Plus 1st Appearance of Lady Luck and Mr. Mystic by Bob Powell.
CGC Graded 5.5 Universal. Only 5 copies exists with a higher grade!
RARE Golden Age #1
This comic is one of the few items listed as RARE in the Overstreet Price Guide.
There are only 14 copies listed in the CGC census as of Oct 26 compared to 68 Action 1ís and 66 Detective 27.
An Action 1 graded 5.5 sold for $956,000 in Aug 2016 and a Detective 27 in 5.0 sold for $710,000 in May 2017 and would approach the 1 million mark if it was 5.5. Getting this important key golden age comic could be a bargain for LESS Than 1% of the cost of either of the big two!

several dollars each for unopened figures (still in their packs).
