*Marvel: The latest in our series of key Marvel issues from 1968! After a long run as the co-star of Tales of Suspense, Iron Man was given his own title in 1968, when the ‘Berlin Wall’ of Marvel’s distribution was broken down, and they were allowed to expand their range of titles. New in this week, a beautiful FN+ copy of Iron Man’s first stunning solo issue, continuing from where his strip in Tales of Suspense left off, with Gene Colan’s hyperkinetic art driving the drama onward! A key item for collectors and investors alike, Iron Man’s pivotal status in the Marvel Universe means that demand for this issue is only going to increase as the years go by. This is a pence copy, with unblemished deep purple cover background, excellent gloss, superior inside page quality, and only minimal edge wear with one tiny ‘nick’ at the cover’s right edge (towards the base of the logo). #1 FN+ p £250.
