    MSH 13 book club

    News flash: it's all about the MCU movies. And the MCU is featuring Carol Danvers as a flagship character of those movies and she'll help headline that universe for the next decade. She's a big deal. Plus, check the CGC census and you'll see there are only 7 copies listed at 9.6. MSH 13 kind of a rare book in high grade.

    Bigger SA key: Silver Surfer 1 or Fantastic Four 49

    Yes! "Worlds Without End!" is also my favorite Surfer story, and maybe my favorite Marvel Comic story ever. I first discovered it in the Fantasy Masterpieces reprints, and now have my own VF+ copy below. Great Stan Lee story that touches on global destruction and time travel. Would love to have a Signature Series copy.

    Stan Lee himself has said that his favorite writing was on the Silver Surfer series, and his best writing on that series were the first ten issues. For me, SS #1-6 feature some of Stan Lee's finest writing ever.

    A 1st appearance is a 1st appearance. Disney/Marvel is pushing for Carol Danvers to be the next flagship character for the MCU. If they're successful with that, the character will transcend her movie (whether it's big or not) into culture icon status. Powers or not, I think it's Carol who's important here, which is why MSH 13 is the book to have.

    Holy ! That's incredible! I have a 9.2 which I'm not selling but wonder what that could fetch?

    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.

    Silver age comics that are heating up

    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?

    Bronze age comics that are heating up on eBay...

    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.
