Technically Lockheed is the nickname for the SR-71 (the model of plane used as the X plane and the maker of the plane was Lockheed Martin), and the plane is a large dragon in the fairy tail.  So I do not think it is technically the same character.  As a fully formed character 166 is the first formal Lockheed, although they used the look and name from 153.  He just got shrunk down.

 

Is 153 technically the first appearance of bamfs also?

 

I had the opportunity to buy a page from this book about 8 years ago, I thought the $1100 price was a bit steep at the time ( it had a nice Pheonix panel on it) . I have regretted not grabbing it ever since.

they shrunk him down? as they did on the cover of 153, full year before 166? and they used the same name??  Its  uncanny. (pun intended) I'll bet a fan letter woke them up to a great idea.  First appearance in size and future look is on the cover of 153

So, is Mister Miracle #4 becoming  a true key? First Big Barda and a great Kirby Cover (kinda gives off a Golden Age vibe).

I know it had been selling well for the past few years but it really seems to be ramping up lately in VF/NM or better. On ebay a CGC 9.0 went for $250, raw NM- for $200+, here on the boards a raw NM- went for $195 (to a boardie that tends to know what a good deal is). CGC graded 9.2-9.4 listed at $400-$500+.

Has Big Barda joined the ranks of the DC high dollar female keys?

Could be, 2nd / 3rd tier character.

 

Speaking of 2nd / 3rd tier woman characters, how about Namorita:

Sub-Mariner #50 CGC 9.8 $1,226

13 blue label on the census. Last sale was for $360 in 2016.

The amount people pay for these picture frames amazes me. There is definitely a dedicated collector base for them.
