Yeah, that one is criminally undervalued. If they'd put Arkham on the cover it would be worth 5x what it is now.

Criminally and insanely undervalued? (pun intended) lol:shy:

Is that lone 9.8 yours? Always a book I wanted to pick up in high grade but haven't gotten around to it. Just have my F/VF or so raw one in my run.
Nope. Just pulled it from some site gallery. Wanted to show the CGC label notations. Or lack of. ;)

What a joker.

 

I agree though, the price is nuts.

I think Arcades first was team-up 65.

 

Wow - I guess I should have done some research before grabbing those copies of 66. I like the cover of 66 better then the 65 but 65 it is.

A NON-cheesecake title I almost always pick up when I can--and has already appreciated but still has a lot of room to grow: Marvelman.

 

The originals. From the 1950s. They're incredibly rare, but considering this is a character that's about to have NEW stories by Neil Gaiman...and will be in print forever from Marvel Comics...and may even eventually join the Marvel Universe...the chance to pick up a 1950s issue for $10 or $20?

 

The supply on ebay has started to dry up--I only see three or four issues up there now, but they do show up and they can often be won for $20 or less. Not a short-term flip, but long-term? Oh, yes.

 

Hopefully Jonathan - since I have two-thirds of the run :cloud9:

It's the first U.S. appearance of Captain Britain as well. I was going to add that one to the list.

Hopefully not soon, Ewan, as I hope to buy some of those from you!

A lot of copies out there for under $20. With the rise in psylocke hype, she's a strong candidate for a solo film, and captain Britain could/should be worked in.

Idk who owns Arcade, but he could easily be worked into one of the television shows or movies. Thanks for bringing this book up.

Yeah, not a lot of people lining up to contribute their favorite 'scoops'!

 

Here are a couple - The maximum carnage storyline went for fourteen issues through five Spidey titles. I pick them up for a buck apiece when I see them.

 

Also, Amazing Spider-man volume 2 issues 20-52. Apart from issue 36 and some of the Campbell covers they really don't see much action, but I pick these up when I see them thinking that ASM completists will be looking for them eventually.

She's not a strong candidate for a solo film. There's no past evidence suggest that a film with an Asian female lead with a British accent (though debatable if Olivia Munn is doing an accent) would have success domestically, or that Olivia Munn can be a standalone lead AND that she would have the physicality to do so. Nor is the character well known enough or the actress well known enough for worldwide appeal. X-Men movies HAVE to be big budget studio movies, so you couldn't just put out a 'nice' movie and make 'some' money. This would be equivalent to 'Lucy', but with an Asian actress with 1/50th (or less) the fame of Scarlet Johannson, and 1/3, the physicality, who is also Asian, and where the -script is somewhat restricted by canon, and also riddled with higher expectations.

 

Note: This is not meant to be disrespectful to Asian American actors and actresses. There are plenty of good and bad ones out there. The current movie/media market domestically simply has not reached a point where big budget box office movies can be carried financially with a solo Asian lead.

 

Note: This is also not a shot at Olivia Munn. While I like her and her acting (esp in Newssroom), she didn't seem like the obvious choice for Psylocke, but admittedly I'm not a casting director or anything like that. She might yet be a movie star, but she certainly isn't now.

 

Lastly, if MARVEL didn't think they could successfully make a Black Widow movie with Scarlet Johanson (and Lucy did aight), what would make ANYONE think Fox would even consider making an Olivia Munn Pyslocke movie?
