Fantastic Four(1962) #4 1st Silver Age App Namor Sub-Mariner Lee Kirby FAIR(1.0)
This week, I am offering a nice selection of low grade, but complete and affordable, classic early FF’s with stories by Stan Lee and art by Jack Kirby. This issue #4 has the first silver age appearances of the Sub-Mariner. I will try to list all the defects:
1) Top right corner chip missing.
2) 1 inch bottom right piece missing.
3) Assorted wrinkles and creases.
1) Wear along the top and right edges.
2) Name stamp below word balloon.
a. Spine – Completely split, detached and reattached with archival tape.
b. Inside pages
2) Many pages have long(3-4 inches) tears off the middle edge. They have been sealed with tape, but several of them have ink scribbled along the actual tears(see pictures).
While this comic may look Good Minus(1.8), I would grade it at Fair (1.0).

NOTE: I forgot to mention that there is a tape stain on the front cover by the top staple. However, you can see it clearly from the picture. Apparently, there was a bit of old cellophane tape that fell off, but left the stain,
