Silver Age comic seekers go big with this 1962 Strange Tales Annual #1, billed on the front cover as a "Big, Triple Value" issue.  Strange Tales was one of the great anthology series featuring behemoth monsters and weird surprise twist stories, that were the backbone of the Marvel stable in the late-1950s and early-1960s. It was right around the time this Strange Tales first annual was published, that Marvel began launching their succession of iconic super-hero characters. A classic example from this historic period of transition, this Strange Tales Annual #1 issue has just returned from CGC grading, after spending more than five decades in seclusion with the original owner. This new to the market example carries a CGC grade of (9.0), which makes it "1/6" at this level on CGC's Census report, with just 6 higher out of a Universal Grade population of 143. Label notes include "Off-White to White" pages.
