Why Tales to Astonish 93 is a Hot Comic


At best a minor key, this book is still proving popular with fans of the Silver Surfer.

It's a while yet before the movie... I would hold if you own one of these.


New records are nothing surprising for 2021, as multiple Silver Age books, especially Marvels, hit new and heady heights month after month.

This book still hasn't broken its own record, but it got pretty close with the most recent 9.8 sale of $12,600.

All high grades did well last year, and middle grades showed solid gains too. Be careful, as when the Fantastic Four movie finally drops and the Silver Surfer fuss subsides, this is going to be one of the first books to suffer.

Recent sales:

  • 9.8 $12,600
  • 9.6 $5,520
  • 9.4 $1,440
  • 9.2 $1,200
  • 9.0 $1,320
  • 8.5 $810
  • 8.0 $565
  • 7.5 $470
  • 7.0 $465
  • 6.5 $370

Starting with his first appearance in Fantastic Four #48, anything featuring the Silver Surfer is red hot this year, and shows no signs of cooling down.

This classic cover featuring the Incredible Hulk and the Surfer livens up the late run of TTA.

It's one of the more affordable Silver Age key issue comic books featuring the surfer.

So if your budget doesn't stretch to an FF#48 or FF#72, then perhaps this book will find a home in your portfolio.

What to Invest In

This is a late issue from the long-running TTA series, and as such it's one of the more common Silver Age covers featuring the Silver Surfer.

Don't be tempted to drop down the grade levels too much. Any Silver Age comic in VF or nicer is going to have an appreciative audience when you come to sell it.

This is a desirable book in any condition, but copies without major damage to the front cover look great, and sell for a premium over copies with creasing and other front cover faults.

Really, when a CGC 8.0 is under $350, why look any further? Try to find one with White pages for an even better deal.

  • 9.8 $7,500
  • 9.6 $4,080
  • 9.4 $1,195
  • 9.2 $900
  • 9.0 $695
  • 8.5 $410
  • 8.0 $335
  • 7.5 $235
  • 7.0 $240
  • 6.5 $115
  • 6.0 $140(!)
  • 5.5 $115
  • 5.0 $130(!)
  • 4.5 $75
  • 4.0 $80
  • 3.5 $85
  • 3.0 $90(!)

This is probably a book you should consider selling once the Fantastic Four / Silver Surfer movie comes out in the next phase of the MCU.

It's too common, and not special enough, to form part of a long-term investment portfolio. Recognize the reason that this is hot -- FF Homecoming, Silver Surfer involvement -- and let this go when the time is right.

Don't be the one selling pumpkins on November 1st.
