    Congrats sir - very very nice copy! :headbang:

    As far as the "mightiest" of the PHM books - I'd just have to say that FFF is the epitome of the genre. Just a month later, Fantastic Four 1 arrives and starts a whole new era for Stan & Co.

    From a value perspective, think TTA27 leads the pack, followed by Groot & FFF. 

    And I'm with you kj, holding TTA1 in my hand the first time was certainly a highlight of my collecting days.

    While I know that TTA #27 is technically a pre-hero book, I rarely think of it in those terms.

    Though he's not the only monster that Marvel carried forward into its superhero continuity, for whatever reason Fin Fang Foom is the one they set up as the coolest and the greatest of them all.  And he certainly is cool.

    But is he really that different from "Grogg," who appeared for a second time just two issues earlier in Strange Tales #87?

    FFF has a much better name.

    I remember thinking I had really arrived when I scored my Tales of Suspense #1, but it’s hard to argue with Astonish 13.

    The question brings back the old argument of significance vs. value. TTA #13 is clearly the more valuable book at the moment, grade for grade, but I've always preferred ST #89 as the book with the most gravitas (or whatever word would be appropriate).

    Yep, I imagine there are more too. Just can't think of any at the moment but I'm sure the team of intrepid regulars in this thread will be able to help out.

  6. Last book of the thread!

    Pep #164 G+/VG--  -- asking $10 + shipping

    Looks good in the bag, but top staple has blown through cover and first two wraps. Bottom staple is secure all the way through, and top staple has centerfold. Minor stain up by comic code stamp, and stain at middle right edge that lightly affects cover and shows up on the edge of several pages (does not affect art). Also some minor white stains on interior that do show up in art panels but do not affect readability. Other light wear as seen in scans. At the very least it is a beautiful placeholder.
