    FF 48 vs Strange Tales 110 both Keys

    Yeah, I agree. Why waste time with Doc Strange or Norrin Radd when you could own a decent copy of AF 15, the most important Marvel Comic ever? You could also consider taking some of that disposable cash/credit and invest in Carol Danvers i.e. a really nice copy of MSH 13. Looks like she might be the MCU's Superman going forward. With the company's name in her title, Disney/Marvel ain't messing around with Captain Marvel.

    FF 48 vs Strange Tales 110 both Keys

    While I love the Surfer as much as anybody, I think Silver Surfer is overrated imo as a character for Marvel films, and it’s the films that drive the market price now. While he could be a guest star in a future FF movie perhaps, I don’t think he’ll ever get his own movie. He’s just not human enough (and therefore a risk for audiences to connect with) for Marvel to risk pouring millions into a solo MCU film. I also think it’ll be a while before you see the Galactus story as it’s been done and Kevin Feige doesn’t seem to like repetition in Marvel movies which is why we may never a MCU Dark Phoenix saga. Dr Strange, on the other hand, is just getting started in the MCU. That being said, I think FF 48 has more potential for relative growth at this point, has a better cover, and has always been a fan favorite collector’s item. I just wouldn’t expect a skyrocket in value.

    Yes, on hold, I mean.

    That copy was definitely not super high grade judging from photo. Looked like a F- to me, maybe even VG+. I sold a 7.0 the other day for about $300. I think enthusiasm might be down a bit on Warlock since GOTG3 got cancelled. Time to buy?

    From the trailer and from some rumors, Captain Marvel's powers may be similar to her Binary powers. I think it will be some kind of combo of Binary powers and the Quantum Realm (perhaps even the Uni-power). But anyway, maybe that's what accounts for the Binary interest.

    Here’s a confirmation. Marvel Super-Heroes #13 is now a major Silver Age Marvel key with no end in sight.

    What raw Silver Age book should I buy?

    $350. Maybe the nicest looking Marvel Super-Heroes #13 you can find on ebay? Carol Danvers will be a huge part of the MCU Avengers going forward and will probably be their leader after Steve Rodgers(Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (RDJ) retire from the movies.

    MSH 13 book club

    I can tell you MSH13 left the 2018 Overstreet prices behind a while ago. High grade copies of CGC 9.0 or higher sell on eBay or ComicLink (when they’re available) for $2500 and up now.

    MSH 13 book club

    Well, according to the CGC census, there aren't that many higher grade copies out there so it's a small club by default I suppose?

    The OFFICIAL "This week in your ORIGINAL ART collection?"

    And here’s a flashback scene from Secret Invasion x-over Ms Marvel #25 featuring a Skrull as Carol Danvers and Mar Vell. Might we see this scene in the movie? Drawn by Ron Frenz and inked and signed by the great Sal Buscema.

    The OFFICIAL "This week in your ORIGINAL ART collection?"

    As the Skrulls have kind of made their big screen debut this week with the Captain Marvel photos, here’s a page drawn by Marshall Rogers from Silver Surfer #6 which I believe is the first time in print we see the origin of the Skrulls.

    My other high grade copy.

    Yeah, I also grabbed a FF#2 mid-grade a couple years ago at a relative bargain. That’s a book that seems to be slowly gaining steam.
