Description



Beginning in 1951, Marvel's Strange Tales series hosted a variety of characters and story types. When the Marvel Age emerged in the early 1960s, super-heroes became the main focus of this classic title. As the 1960s came to a close, so too did Strange Tales, leading to Dr. Strange and Nick Fury getting their own solo titles, while the Torch continued to heat things up in the pages of the seminal Fantastic Four original run, along with a brief solo series as well. Follow the early adventures of the Human Torch, Dr. Strange and Nick Fury with this 1960s Strange Tales and Nick Fury Silver Age comic book lot of (30).

This new to the market comic offering comes from the estate of a lifetime collector who purchased his collection at time of publication in the 1960s. One of sixty-six such comic book lots in the current H&S May 2020 auction, these Silver Age classics were held by the original owner until his demise last year, at which point his collection was bequeathed to a longtime friend, who though reluctant to let go of his friend's nostalgic possessions, has decided they should be enjoyed by dedicated collectors. Many of the comics that are graded were submitted to CGC c.2001-2003 and along with those that are not graded, were lovingly stored for more than fifty years regardless of condition. Enjoy this vintage selection from the fabulous "Ford Collection."
