Founder Martin Goodman followed up the sale of his industry dominate Marvel Comics line with the introduction of the short-lived Atlas/Seaboard line in 1974. Similar to many upstart sports leagues, A/S overpaid for talent (including many famous comic artists such as Neal Adams, Steve Ditko and John Severin) and folded in 1975, relegating this line to obscure and somewhat scarce status.
All books in this lot are bagged/boarded. Due to prolonged storage in original vendor bundles, several show some spine roll. This condition is very minor and should be easily remedied by placing individual issues under heavy books until the slight curling is eliminated. Overall this lot presents as exactly what it is, unread examples in like-new condition with strong colors, abundant original gloss and generally solid spines. Only a small number show any real signs of wear and as stated above 90% of this lot grades as FN to NM+ and only 10% are lesser. Indeed many will be candidates for grading.
