  1. LOBO'S BACK (DC, 1992) - $6 COMPLETE SERIES: #1-#4 AVERAGE GRADE: NM- Yeah, so... the 1990's. Hooray! The Golden Age of Comics.... said no one, ever.
  2. MAN OF STEEL (DC, 1986) - $15 COMPLETE SERIES: #1-#6 AVERAGE GRADE: NM- I have mixed feelings on this series. On the one hand, it's a classic Superman story, and a great read. But it's more about what it DID than what it IS that bugs me. I honestly think this series was the genesis of "reboot" fever in our favorite comic universes. For example, I think just while I was writing that last sentence, the DC Universe has once again started over from scratch. So... thank you, Man of Steel!
  3. X-51: MACHINE MAN (MARVEL, 1999) - $20 COMPLETE SERIES: #1-#12, plus variant copy of issue #1 AVERAGE GRADE: NM- This is a great late '90s series, featuring... uh... well... Ok. Here's the thing. I've always PLANNED to read these books? You know? They'd always be in a pile somewhere like "Oh, I should probably check that out at some point"... but I never get around to it. So I finally decide to give up, and just let it go. So here's the deal, how about YOU buy it, YOU read it.. and you tell ME how it is? Thanks!
  4. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700.1-#700.5 (Marvel, 2013) COMPLETE REGULAR & VARIANT COVER SETS AVERAGE GRADE: NM After Peter Parker took back his original body from Doc Ock in Amazing Spider-Man #700, there was a break before Marvel relaunched the title with Amazing Spider-Man #1 (volume 3) in the spring of 2014. In between they produced a series of books showcasing the return of Peter Parker — and this is that complete set! What makes this lot special is not ONLY do you get all five of these hard-to-find books, but also a complete set of the variant covers for each! So it is a 10-book lot in all! So included is this lot is: #700.1 - regular cover ; #700.1 - Klaus Janson variant cover; #700.2 - regular cover; #700.2 - Micro Federici variant cover; #700.3 - regular cover; #700.3 - Joe Quinones variant cover; #700.4 - regular cover; #700.4 - John Tyler Christopher variant cover; #700.5 - regular cover; and #700.5 - In-Hyuk Lee variant cover
  5. BLACKHAWK (DC, 1976) - $50 COMPLETE BRONZE AGE SERIES: #244-#250 AVERAGE GRADE: NM- Blackhawk was a staple of the Silver Age, with issues #1-#243 being published up through 1968. But the book then stopped until it revived again for this seven-issue series in 1976, spanning issues #244-#250. It would again pick up with issue #251... in 1982! It's rare to find these books in high grade condition, and rarer still to see a complete set of the 1976 books! UPDATE - Latest news is that non other than Steven Spielberg himself will be directing a Blackhawk movie for DC soon! Cue people losing their minds going after these books for a certain period of time! Fresh off of hearing that news, I immediately jacked up the price of this lot $0.00. So...I'm trying to capture that Spielberg speculator cash, as you can see.
  6. SUPERMAN TREASURY LOT (DC, 1973-1981) - $60 LOT OF THREE (3) TREASURY EDITION BOOKS AVERAGE GRADE: FN/VF You either love Treasury Edition books, or you hate America. I think it's that simple of a choice. LOL. Ok, maybe it's a generational thing again, but for those of us who recall buying these when they were new, there's always going to be something special about these books. Maybe CGC will figure out a way to protect them at some point! This lot includes three Superman-centric Treasuries: 1. The Amazing World of Superman (1973) - FN/VF This book was, I think, a special item produced in Metropolis, Ill in the early 70's and it's chock full of info on Superman. It has comic stories, articles, etc. But also this giant map of Krypton, which I think many of them usually don't have. This one has it, and it's still attached. Oh, apologies though. This book is actually BIGGER than a typical Treasury Edition, so while I will pack it carefully and wrap it in bubble wrap and cardboard, I don't have a bag/board that fits it! 2. Famous 1st Editions C-26 : Action Comics #1 (1974) - VF For those who want their reprint of one of the most important comics of all-time to be 50% BIGGER? This is the treasury for you! 3. DC Special Series #25 : Superman II (1981) - FN+ If this book was for ANY other movie, I'd discount it.. but the fact that it collects stories, photos and informaton from one of, if not THE greatest, superhero movies of all-time? It's a pretty great, underrated Treasury Edition. And one, I have to say, that I don't see around very much... so I have no idea how common it is.
  7. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL. 3 (MARVEL, 2014) - $75 COMPLETE SERIES: #1-#18, Annual #1 (plus 4 variant covers) AVERAGE GRADE: NM This was an enjoyable and significant self-contained volume of Spidey books before the uneccesary but nowadays inevitable renumbering. In this set we got the introduction of Silk, the recasting of Black Cat as a villain (the first use of the character in years... and while a straight out villain seems an odd choice it's great to have Felicia front and center again in these books!), as well as the "more fun than it should have been" Spider-Verse storyline. All in all, this was a good run. Key Issue: #4 - 1st appearance of Silk Variants: #1 Skottie Young, #9 Rocket & Groot, #16 Ming Doyle, #17 What the Duck
