Iron Man (1968) 137 Issue Lot including first appearance of Drax the Destroyer
Hello! This is one of several auctions I will be posting over the next many weeks as I look at selling a comic book collection a few decades in the making. If there are any series, characters, or creators you are interested in, check out my other auctions, or feel free to ask and I can let you know if I have any coming up in future auctions.
… is for a collection of 137 issues from the 1968 Iron Man series. This set includes the first appearance (issue #55) of Drax the Destroyer of Guardians of the Galaxy fame. Issues included in this auction are:
- King-Size Special 1
- King-Size Annuals 3 – 5
- Giant-Size Iron Man 1
- 2, 14, 38, 46 - 49, 53 - 56, 59 - 67, 72, 74 - 81, 83, 85, 89, 92 - 156, 161 - 165
- There are also an extra copies of the following issues:
- 111, 146, 147, and 148 (1 additional each)
- 149 – 151, 153 – 156, and 161 - 164 (2 additional each)
- 152 (4 additional)
Condition: Due to the varied conditions in this set, I’ll see what I can do to break it down a bit:
- Annuals are Fine to VF condition
- The Giant-Size issue looks to be VG to Fine
- Issues 2 and 14 look to be in VG to Fine condition, with issue 38 a bit less at Good to VG
- Starting with issue 46, I would say earlier issues in this run are in Fine condition, with most of the later issues being in Very Fine to NM condition.
Note: All issues are bagged and boarded.
Statement on Condition
These comics have not been professionally graded, but I do have a basic understanding of grading guidelines. Because most of these auctions involve many issues across one title or theme, I simply do not have the time to grade each one individually. Instead, I am providing what I see to be the overall range of conditions for a set. As a general rule, the later the release date, the better the condition will be.
I am not offering any returns/refunds on these auctions. If there is a particular issue where condition is important, let me know and I will see if I can provide more details.
