You could flip your 7.0 129 for a nice 101.

My preference is 9.6 White pages. I have thought about selling some of my doubles I have like 129,194, 238, 252, 300 etc. to help pay for it but I have had the 7.0 for 40 years and I am not quite ready to part with it.

Wow that's a dilemma most here wouldn't mind having. If the 252 & 300 are above 9.4 you may not have to flip the 129 if you're willing to spend some extra out of pocket. Anyways if I was after a 101 I'd wait till well after the movie which is in June or July I think

While we're talking about books whose "value" is spiking due to movie hype, let's talk about ASM #210, featuring the first appearance of Madame Web.  I mean, no offense but does anybody really think Madame Web is going to be a major character in the MCU?  Moreover, did anyone ever like that character in the first place?  Definitely one of the more hokey ideas in the Spidey canon IMHO.  I happen to be looking for one in 9.8 to complete a run, and I'm probably going to wait a while in the hopes the crazy asking prices I'm seeing calm down.

I think the speculation is that she is going to be in the next Into the Spider-Verse film, which is way more likely than her being in the live action movies.

Same for ASM 212. Mine is a newsstand 9.6 but like Iron man #219 I will wait until until the prices come back to earth before upgrading.

Wow. My books from the 70’s, 80’s and beyond are long gone to fund other comic purchases e.g AF 15. In particular, I loved the Roger Stern Run. I wonder if they still hold up?

That makes a ton more sense, thanks for clarifying.  I somehow got the impression that she would end up in Far From Home.

I read the Roger Stern written ASM issues not too long ago and I thought they were excellent. I regret not buying the Stern Omnibus, which included his PPSSM stories, when it was still in print.

only one that missed the target; i'll put it up for sale here once an upgrade acquired.

Besides #31, this is the most under-rated book in the run.  First full-story MJ.  Jazzy John in his prime.  :cloud9:

Edit: Talking about 43.

31 has been on fire lately. I agree that 43 deserves more love.

hey all i know this isn't a silver age question. Its a modern question i was trying to figure out. So i was over at marvel.wikia.com website and they have the annual that came out back in sept 2018 listed as being part of vol. 4 run even though vol.5 already had 5 or 6 issues out. So i was curious is that annual from 2018 officially listed as part of vol. 4 and not vol. 5. I was just curious as the upcoming annual in june is listed as part of vol. 5. And if the one from last year is for vol. 4 i would need to relist it in my comics catalogue i have. So if any one could help me out that would be great. The issue is that one about symbiote suit story.
