Up for sale is Fantastic #21, a very hard-to-find UK Magazine printed in 1967. This issue features the first appearance of Black Widow from Tales of Suspense #52!

While technically a reprint of the Widow’s first appearance, what we have here is rather unique. UK Pence comics from this era are highly collectible, and with a CGC Certified grade of 7.5 Very Fine -, this is an outstanding example of a very key issue.

Tales of Suspense #52 has exploded in value with the announcement that the the femme fatale’s solo film is on the way. In comparable grade, the US edition is going for close to $3,000! Add this fact to the increased interest in Pence editions, and this awesome oversized issue is nothing short of a genuine treasure.

As is common with this series, there is some rust on the staples and migration to the cover. I’ve only ever seen three of these and ALL of them had this flaw. That said, this is likely the highest grade example you’ll find!

If you’re a Black Widow fan or you’re looking to invest in a rare silver age book, you can’t go wrong with this beauty. Don’t miss your chance to add this milestone issue to your collection.

This gem just came in from grading, so the slab is clean and unblemished.
