Black Knight #1 CGC 7.0
"Black Knight #1 (Atlas, 1955) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. Origin and first appearance of the original Black Knight, with cover and interior art by Joe Maneely. One of the very coolest Atlas covers, with a wonderful logo that unfortunately was changed after this issue. A modern version of the character will appear in Marvel's upcoming Eternals movie, making this a book with real breakout potential. Overstreet 2019 FN 6.0 value = $444; VF 8.0 value = $947. CGC census 7/20: 3 in 7.0, 1 higher. One of those Atlas titles that's a hard find in nice grade, let alone the grades we're offering in this sale of the complete five-issue run. We believe this to be the finest set of the run ever offered at one time. The titles had its devoted followers, but is now red hot, with the lead character, played by Kit Harington of Game of Thrones fame, slated to appear in the upcoming Marvel Comics Universe movie The Eternals."
They are right, you know, this may be the finest examples ever auctioned at one time of the five issues Atlas put out of Black Knight. We all know how this works; the books are red hot before the film comes out, and then after the film hits, they drop a bit. I am not so sure about this one, though. Black Knight, played by Harington, could be a major MCU player going forward. So this copy of this book would be a wise investment at this time. Again, you only have four days until July 9th to bid on this one. So, if you have the extra $2,900 right now, up the bid and snag this by clicking here, you can also check out the other auctions going on at Heritage right now.
