I agree. Probably fewer than a quarter of a million of those.

 

just think about that statement.

 

A quarter million

 

 

yeah, these are rare all right :tonofbricks:

As rare as snow in Canada.

Personally, I like him better. (shrug) I'm curious to see how high this book can go despite its numbers. I think of Hulk 181, and how the price just kept going up and up, even with its sheer numbers. Are the print runs comparable?

Continuing with the letters theme, here is the fan response to the introduction of Deadpool from issue #100. Some great letters! According to Terry Westrum, New Mutants had become "hot" (thumbs u

I also like Deadpool more, but to me hes in the same class as the Wolverine and the Punisher (the COOL class). Deadpool was one of the few newer comics I enjoyed READING.....Before I swore off any title that didnt start in 1960s. :sumo:

I liked Deadpool in the Uncanny X-Force before that I had never really bothered with him. I picked up the new Marvel Now #1 and didnt care for it.

I'm, not a fan (I'm indifferent), but I did keep my CGC 9.8 copy. It's one of the few comics I still own. I will definitely unload it once the movie buzz drives the price up.

It's a little bit of both. The book is not uncommon, but it's only going for "hundreds" in 9.8. There are 800+ in 9.8, so it's not all that uncommon either. The books sitting in an overstock bin or forgotten in a storage locker may not be 9.8's all, and that is overlooked. The raw "ebay NM" is still a $60-$80 book, and I don't think that's all out of line when the character's popularity is considered. It's when those start going for $100+ consistently that one needs to say the bubble's ready to burst, because the market can/will be absolutely saturated with "good enough" raw copies.

It all depends on how big Deadpool gets. If he enters wolverine/spiderman/batman territory, (which i believe he's capable of), 900+ 9.8's may not be too many, and there still might be a big demand, like Hulk 181 continues to have in any grade. New collectors would have to come out of the woodwork in order to keep that kind of price, though. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

It's not a 9.8, but it is my first ever CGC submission.

For the most part, I agree. This one is very much Hulk 181 all the way (which is also a fairly "common" book). Character's popularity is going to drive the price more than anything else.

I love the character. Probably my favorite. I believe that the movie means everything for this book, though. Bad movie? The price will sink like a bag of rocks. An established character like spiderman or wolverine can take a hit from a subpar showing, but not deadpool.. yet. This movie can only go 2 ways, in my opinion.. a monster home run or a big whiff. They HAVE to do this right. Edited by Paper Airplane
