MOST OF THE FEW COPIES TO EVER SURFACE IN FINER SHAPE HAIL FROM THE PACIFIC COAST PEDIGREE, SO THIS AWE-INSPIRING 9.4 WITH PERFECT CENTERING IS AS ABOUT AS GOOD AS IT GETS, AND VISUALLY, THIS GEM IS SUITABLE FOR EVEN THE MOST PICKY FAN. IF YOU MISS THIS CHANCE, EVEN MERE 9.2's ONLY SURFACE ABOUT ONCE EVERY FEW YEARS, SO YOU MAY WANT TO SETTLE FOR A LESSER ONE LIKE THAT IF YOU'RE AT THE RIGHT PLACE AND TIME TO FIND ONE IN THAT MORE COMMON SHAPE, AS IT MAY TAKE A LIFETIME TO LOCATE ONE ON PAR WITH THIS SPECIMEN.
THIS ISSUE BOASTS A GREAT COVER WHICH IS A TREAT TO BEHOLD IN THIS SUPERLATIVE STATE. THIS COMIC HAS ALL THE HALLMARKS OF KEEPER, WITH THE PHENOMENAL GLOSS AND BLINDING-BRIGHT COLORS; PLUS NOTE THE SUPERB CENTERING, AND THE FACT THAT THE COVER IS NOT DINGY IN THE CENTER OF THE BACK COVER LIKE SOME HIGH-GRADE EXAMPLES.IN ADDITION, THIS DOESN'T HAVE AN ARRIVAL DATE ON THE FRONT, WHICH SOME HAVE IN THE LOGO BOX. EXPECT TO BE THRILLED WITH THIS NEAR-IRREPLACEABLE SPECIMEN, MUCH LIKE SOME OF THE OTHER EXCEPTIONAL EARLY X-MEN COMICS WE ARE NOW OFFERING! I've always wanted my high-grade Marvel superhero comics to have great cut and alignment, things that the certification companies scarcely consider when grading.
STUNNING FRESH BRIGHT CLEAN BACK COVER, MUCH LIKE THE FRONT! IF YOU ARE A LONG-TERM COLLECTOR OF HIGH GRADE VINTAGE AVENGERS OR X-MEN COMICS THEN YOU KNOW THAT THESE EARLY APPEARANCES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TOUGH TO FIND IN HIGH GRADE SHAPE, ESPECIALLY THESE HISTORIC CROSSOVER COVER ISSUES, AND WITH THE ADVENT OF COMICS GUARANTY COMPANY THIS PHENOMENON CAN BE CONFIRMED WITH THE POPULATION REPORT. This book is well known to fans and dealers alike, as an epic battle issue featuring the teenage mutant Angel taking on the invincible Iron Man, (who would later join the Avengers), with a unique cover by Jack "King" Kirby, along with interior art by Steve Ditko, drawing the ever-popular mutants.
This one is a treat to behold when it's unblemished by such pesky detractors as noteworthy creases or spine-stresses. The Uncanny X-Men and Iron Man and the Avengers are already household names around the globe, thanks in part to the smash-hit films and record-setting DVD sales and all the toys and videogames and statues and animation and action-figures and clothing and plethora of other licensed merchandise. There was yet another wildly popular big-budget film out recently, with the DVD bringing in new fans around the world as we speak, and mutants are slated for more upcoming films and TV shows... It doesn't get any more "Blue Chip" than this! This incredible original first-print comic-book WILL find a new home, as the asking price is LOW and there is NO RESERVE!This historic comic is a real find in unrestored NM or better shape, as many copies had minute production flaws such as printing creases or Marvel Chipping, while others were read and re-read, time and time again. However, this copy is spectacular, as it's super clean and there is no noteworthy wear or aging, and it has precise printing registration. Plus the paper quality is superb, and only a few copies have.
Surfaced in slightly finer condition. And the gloss is excellent, too!
Good luck finding this level of eye appeal again in the future, as this beauty boasts deep rich uniform colors and a flat clean appearance, devoid of common problems such as print-creases and distributor ink, and the unusually clean bright logo just adds to the allure.

High-grade specimens of this less-common number are always in demand, but are rarely available in the market.In such stellar condition as this!

Great cover colors; And the gloss is phenomenal, which must be seen in person to be appreciated. If you are a discriminating Iron Man collector, serious CGC-graded comics investor, or just a devout X-Men comic collector and prefer unrestored books without significant flaws, then NOW is your brief window of opportunity. It looks less appealing in the disappointing pictures, with lots of glare and blurriness, but in person the book looks spectacular and the super bright colors really leap out at you! The conservative Overall CGC Universal Grade is an incredible Near Mint; --it looks almost new from outside the clear plastic CGC case! This extra bright clean copy sports the Blue Unrestored CGC Label; --And the CGC case has no scuffs or cracks or scratches in the crystal-clear case.
