Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m jealous.

NOT!

Ok. I was just asking. Maybe it's just an early apearance. According to Miracle Man's wiki it says that Marvelman #25 (1954) is his first appearance.

Marvelman isn't Miracle Man.

Welcome to the boards.

Thanks. You're correct that Marvelman isn't Miracle Man, but according to Miracle Man's wiki page, his (Miracle Man) first appearance was in Marvelman #25.

Anyone can edit Wikipedia to say anything they want it to.

I know that. So are you saying that the information is incorrect?

I am finding on some of these books it is hard to gauge market value. For instance what does a SIP 1 first print 9.8 go for nowadays, only like 6 or 7 ever graded that high. Same with Death rattle 8 9.8 which was shared earlier in the thread. Others like Aledbo 2 setting high records (9.4 blue sold for $7K last week). I just don't want to break the bank but also want to be competitive.

I keep forgetting to start an inquiry about this one.

Published by Active Images in August, 1998.  Possible 1st appearance of Elephantmen (Hip Flask).

Warrior 1 & deadline 1 are impossible in 9.4+

I believe the highest graded and only graded copy of Deadline 1 is a 8.5.  The raw copies I’ve seen don’t even come close.  I wonder if there is a stash out there waiting to be found.

Marvelman #25 is the first appearance of Marvelman.  Alan Moore and Garry Leach revived Marvelman in Warrior #1 in 1982, reprinted in Miracleman #1. Moore retconned the character's previous appearances as stories fed to him while he was kept sedated. When Moore and Alan Davis worked on Captain Britain, the Fury killed various heroes of Earth-238, who were based on classic British comics characters, e.g. Android Andy = Robot Archie, Tom Rosetta = Kelly's Eye, Miracleman, = Marvelman, the Arachnid = the Spider, Puppetman = Dollmann, Colonel Tusker = General Jumbo, Gaath = Garth, Iron Tallon = the Steel Claw, Roy Risk = Dan Dare. Their gravestones were shown in Marvel Superheroes #388, with the deaths shown in flashback in the Daredevils #7. Miracle Man was the villain in Fantastic Four #3 :-)

Cavewoman #1 (the original 6-issue limited series by Budd Root -- Cavewoman's first appearance)  -- I absolutely loved this book when it came out. Budd Root's dinosaurs were incredibly drawn, second only to Schultz, and the story was a lot of fun. Very loyal fanbase. A 9.8 copy is near-impossible to find. (This is not my copy of the book. Just plucked the image off of an eBay listing.)

Penthouse Comix #1 is another gem, though obviously on the adult-material side of collecting.
