Freshly graded and highest SS series version of Comics Journal 85 in 8.5 with Zeck, Beatty, and Shooter signatures and featuring 1st Black suit appearance predating Amazing Spider-Man 252, Secret Wars 8, & Marvel Age 12. CGC recognizes it and there are several previews out there that are being recognized.
With only a mere 9 graded total, you can clearly see how scarce this issue really is in high grade. The black suit and Secret Wars starts here in this issue which is later shown in Marvel Age 12 in black & red.Important issue detailing history and creation of Secret Wars and black Symbiote costume. In addition, the actual Comics Journal mailing envelope is included. Good luck trying to find another. Most of the books were tossed and not in high grade and not common on the market like ASM 300 due to rarity.
