Here, a nearly flawless example of this Bronze Age key, featuring the 1st appearance of mega cool Magus, and also, more of Jim Starlin’s beautiful work within the realm of the cosmic-abstract. This copy presents exceptionally well, with terrific centering, bold color saturation, and fantastic eye appeal; just an incredible piece. Bought when new and then archived within the same personal collection for decades, this copy was eventually encapsulated, though at a time when, in CGC history, grading was considered to be incredibly stringent as compared to today’s (albeit still strict, but less exacting) standards. Also, as the vintage of the holder itself would suggest, the pressing of comics during that same period was never industrially popular nor widely practiced, as like in our current times. I can personally guarantee this copy was never pressed. However, such may be a highly worthwhile endeavor for any who try.. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Comic Books & Memorabilia\Comics\Comics & Graphic Novels”. The seller is “pontifex_comics” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
