  • 1st full appearance of Wolverine.
  • Slicing back onto the Hot 10 and entering at number 2 is the Amazing Spider-Man #300 of the Murphy Brown era (what? turns out TV sucked in late 87 and that was the best reference I could find).
  •  We saw a strong uptick in volume of sales this week. Precipitated by nothing seemingly...always a fishy sign.
  • Regardless we saw a 3.0 hit $2,200 (up from $2k), a 4.5 hit $2,907 (up from $2,600), a 6.5 hit $3,500 which is the highest all-time except for a lone sale in 2019 at $3,913 (and looked like shilling).
  •  We also saw a 7.5 hit $4,080 (up from $4k) and an 8.0 finish at $4,700.
  • Quick recap: When the Disney acquisition of Fox was announced in 2018 it sent X-Men keys (which had been to that point overlooked by collectors in favor of keys involving the MCU characters) rocketing to new heights.
  • As the first wave of FOMO took hold and collectors scrambled to pick up copies, books from all periods of X-Men history made big jumps.
  • Giant Size X-Men #1 and X-Men #1 have, of late, had price jumps shortly after Hulk #181 does so expect some more movement on those soon.

  • The G.I. Joe comic book series was created by Vietnam veteran Larry Hama and was initially pitched to be a Nick Fury series but at the same time, Hasbro was looking to team-up with Marvel to launch their new 3.75-inch action figures (a term coined by Hasbro). Fury Force was an ideal concept that fit Hasbro's marketing initiative
  • G.I. Joe comics have been published by Marvel, Image, Dreamwave, Devil's Due and IDW almost without interruption for almost 40 years. The most significant absence of new stories occurred between 1995 (after the Todd McFarlane G.I. Joe Special) and 2001 when Image launched their first ongoing series
