Owner's Description

In February 2011 this book was highest according to the CGC Census with 6 books at 9.6 and none higher. This book has near-perfect cover centering and cover orientation, and with pure White Pages, it is the best looking Astonishing Tales #3 book, I have seen. Furthermore this book marks the entry of Barry White to the series, thus for collectors of Barry Smith books this book is a key issue (together with the origin of Garokk). According to Wikipedia:

"Garokk, also known as the Petrified Man, is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Astonishing Tales vol. 1 #2 (November 1970) and was created by Roy Thomas and Jack Kirby".
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garokk

Thus the first appearance of Garokk was in Astonishing Tales #2, although his origin was first explained in this book.
