TALES OF SUSPENSE
Comic Books For Sale
Captain America - Iron Man -

One of the most significant Marvel Comic titles made its debut as a mystery title until the Marvel Age of Comics burst onto the scene in 1961 with the Fantastic Four.

Upon seeing the success of that title Marvel started unleashing other superhero characters and eventually started to convert Tales of Suspense into a superhero book.

Here Iron Man and Captain America would forge a significant path through the Silver Age-1960s.

Iron Man made his first appearance in Tales
of Suspense #39 in 1963 and gained his first series in the pages of this title.

Captain America would receive his first solo Silver Age series in issue #59.

Both characters ran side by side for 41 issues before Marvel was able to create newer titles for both characters.

Captain America directly took over with issue #100 after Tales of Suspense ended with issue #99 and Iron Man was given his own book in the same year at a time when Marvel was able to expand on its current monthly titles.

When you run through the Tales of Suspense listings in the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, you see a lot of key issues in this run that have had a great significance to the Marvel Universe. 

There are some great stories and great artwork between issues #39 through issues #99.  Jack Kirby and Gene Colan were the primary artists during these issues and made an indelible impression on all who have had an opportunity to look through and read any of the books in this range.

Tales of Suspense 39   Tales of Suspense 48   Tales of Suspense 49

Iron Man set the stage for the title and quickly evolved into one of Marvel's greatest superheroes. 

Happy Hogan and Pepper Potts who are Iron Man/Tony Stark's main supporting cast made their introduction in issue #45 and one of his primary villains made his debut in issue #46-Crimson Dynamo.

Iron Man's armor would change a couple of times in this book going from gun metal gray to gold to his famous red and gold colors with each time the armor shape changing especially to the red and gold in issue #48.

The X-Men made their first cross-over appearance in issue #49 at a time when characters from one book making an appearance in another character's book was a premium.  The Avengers were also featured in this issue which was their first cross-over appearance without Captain America.

Some of Iron Man's and Marvel's mainstays made their first appearances in issues #50-Mandarin, #52-Black Widow and #57-Hawkeye which are at the top of a lot of collectors' wishlist.

Marvel's most mysterious character the Watcher has his origin told for the first time in issue #53.

Tales of Suspense 50   Tales of Suspense 52   Tales of Suspense 57  

The infamous battle issue with Iron Man and Captain America tangling for the first time came in issue #58 which was a quick prelude to their back to back series that started in the next issue with issue #59. 

The two would initially share the cover of each issue and eventually would alternate as the main subject on the book's cover.  Captain America would primarily be the focus on the even number issues cover and Iron Man on the odd number issues cover.

Not since the Golden Age has Captain America's origin been told to readers, but with issue #63 the collectors of that era finally got their opportunity to read about Steve Rogers and his path forever changing with the injection of a super soldier serum during World War II to become the Living Legend.

Tales of Suspense 58   Tales of Suspense 59   Tales of Suspense 63

Continuing through issues in the 60s and 70s you begin to find some of both heroes' villains making their entrance into the universe with the Red Skull the most prominent in issue #65 with his origin told in issue #66.

Titanium Man, Batroc, Agent 13-Sharon Carter, Whiplash, the Cosmic Cube all made their debut in this title.

Tales of Suspense 65   Tales of Suspense 80   Tales of Suspense 98

There are some fabulous covers that have been displayed in this book making them a focus for collectors who love to collect high impact covers.

With a couple of Iron Man and Captain America movies having been made and a few animated movies and TV movies and animated TV series been produced, many collectors continue to search for issues in this title for their collections.

Purchasing Tales of Suspense Comics

When reviewing sources to acquire Tales of Suspense issues, I like to check out local comic book shops and conventions.  I get to see the comics in person and can examine more issues at one time than I could online.

Eventually local sources go only so far since they rely on collectors and other sellers in the area to bring them in.  Sources on the internet tend to travel and pick up collections and will buy a lot of books online to add to their inventory.  They also have a lot of people from all over the world who will contact them since they are not tied to a local area to sell to them.  These sellers also tend to advertise on a more global scale than the local comic book shop since their marketplace is the entire world essentially.

mycomicshop is a great place to find Tales of Suspense issues.  They're a national online seller and have been selling comic books through the mail since the 1960s.  They try to stock every issue of every title that has ever been published. 

You'll see a large amount of Tales of Suspense covers of key books in the run as well as general issues in the title on this page that I think will interest any Tales of Suspense collection which will take you directly to mycomicshop's inventory of that issue.

There you will see every condition of that issue they currently have in stock so you can choose the right condition of the book that you're looking for.

Don't be worried if you do not see an issue in stock when you click on any of the links.  Often times they will receive an issue into their inventory on a fairly regular basis as they purchase books and collections daily.  Just go ahead and bookmark the link after you've clicked on the issue here or check back here and click on the link to see if the issue has come into stock.  The links will stay permanently connected.

I've purchased books from mycomicshop before and will continue to use them.  Their grading is accurate and they are a reliable source.  They have great customer service in providing you books in a timely manner.

Amazon.com is another great choice.  There is a large amount of sellers who have their own eStores there and offer a variety of issues from this long-running title.  Amazon themselves stock various reprint books which are a great way to purchase some of these issues are a very affordable price.

I have provided direct links to some
Tales of Suspense trade paperbacks and hardcovers that are on sale at Amazon on this page which will have additional details, reviews and purchasing information.  Simply click on any of the image links and you'll be able to find more information on those publications.

Ebay is another option as thereís a lot of collectors/sellers/dealers always looking to move in and out of product and use Ebay as their avenue. 

You may find some good deals on Ebay, but be careful to check out the auctions and or Buy it Now listings carefully.  Some sellersí terms are not right for everyone and sometimes the items are not what you expect. 

If condition is important to you, then be sure to ask a lot of questions.  If you donít get the right kinds of answers youíre looking for, then move on and try another listing.

Always check out the sellerís profile to see how their past selling has been.  If theyíre new to selling and have only been buying, ask questions.

You always want to be comfortable with the person youíre potentially going to be buying from and you really need to know what it is youíre getting.

If you're looking for CGC Tales of Suspense comics, then ComicLink is your best choice.  They focus primarily on CGC books and you can find some of the top notch Tales of Suspense issues available on their site.  Expect to see from time to time CGC Tales of Suspense #39 (Iron Man's first appearance) and others of that era.

I hope this page has been informative to you regarding the world of Tales of Suspense comic books.

Happy Collecting!!!
