Fantastic Four #1 is one of the most coveted comic books of the Silver Age. Containing the origin of the Fantastic Four – Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Girl, the Human Torch and the Thing, it’s considered by many to be responsible (along with Showcase #4) for the start of the Silver Age resurgence in comic book collecting. Without a doubt it helped fuel Marvel’s rise to significance.
This comic book has been and remains a Silver Age blue chip. Currently, there is nothing on the horizon that should alter the desirability, and the popularity of the two Fantastic Four movies should only solidify it’s position.
