Jack Kirby cover/art; 1st app. Black Panther; Inhumans app. (7/66)Stan Lee kept his fingers on the pulse of the streets during the turbulence of 1960's America as he masterfully addressed topics of popular concern in the comics he created. In an inspired move, Lee and Jack Kirby brought Marvel's very first black superhero to life, T'Challa, the Black Panther. To say that this was history in the making would be an understatement. Considering the unbridled success of the character's silver screen career, this comic, the Black Panther's very first appearance, is sure to be a prime focus of collectors. The response to Black Panther's entry into the MCU's film roster has prompted a spike in sales of Panther titles. With first appearances being the most valuable, this comic has seen a meteoric rise in value over the last few years.
Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.
