Alex Schomburg cvr; Red Skull 1st cvr app, Stan Lee 1st published at Marvel (Timely)Published in May 1941, this third appearance of the popular Marvel character, Captain America, is of particular significance because it contains the very first published work by Stan Lee. "Stan the Man" made his foray into the comics world by scripting a text story here entitled "Captain America Foils the Traitor's Revenge." In addition to the first cover appearance of Cap's arch villain the Red Skull, the story unfolds with a twist, including the first time Captain America uses his signature "shield-toss," in which he employs his shield as a weapon, rather than just as a defensive object. Touting the classic Schomburg wartime cover that has come to define the Golden Age Timely comic, this professionally restored copy of Captain America Comics #3 is quite a nice find for our latest Event Auction. Featuring a Red Skull cover and a Stan Lee text story in the interior, this is a popular key for First Avenger fans worldwide. The work done on this remarkable 9.6 CBCS-graded book has helped it rise to the position of highest graded copy on the census, and with just under 120 copies on the boards, any opportunity to snag this classic issue should not be overlooked, in original or restored condition.
