  • Variant cover art by Todd McFarlane
  • βœ… This is an inexpensive, intriguing potential sleeper for multiple reasons:
  • 1. McFarlane collectors are more about collecting than flipping
  • 2. It’s not very often McFarlane lends his masterful skill outside of his own titles
  • 3. Probably scarce. Unfortunately there is no longer a resource to estimate quantities ordered BUT Killadelphia #12 was ranked 102 in January in quantity of copies ordered which doesn’t even factor in DC books so it would’ve likely ranked closer to 200. It was 10 spots lower than Bettie Page #5 with a Jung-Geun Yoon cover
  • 4. This variant was one of three very cool covers but the price was $5 due to having six extra pages of story and that $1 factors into how much shops were willing to order, especially in January 2021
  • πŸ“ˆ +2,300% increase in copies sold this week versus the previous week after being featured in Nick's Picks Weekly - Week 48

  • 2nd appearance and partial origin of Erik Killmonger
  • 1st appearance of Venomm, an ally of Killmonger
  • A teaser at the end of Jungle Action #6 depicts an illustration of Venomm
  • βœ… Will Killmonger return to the MCU? Well, resurrection is a part of his earliest stories and the franchise could use the additional star power of Michael B. Jordan
  • This issue is undervalued as a second appearance considering how well-received Killmonger was in The Black Panther and the possibility of future appearances
  • 9.6s and 9.4s can be found for $100 - $125 while a 9.2 sold for $40 in March
  • The highest quantity of grades on the census is 9.4 with 32 copies registered and no other grade exceeds 30 registered copies
  • Grade 9.2 register only 12 copies

  • Eros renamed Starfox by Wasp
  • Starfox joins the Avengers
  • βœ… [Nick's Picks 10/14/2021] James Gunn has said Guardians Vol. 3 will be his last at the helm of the franchise and one could only assume that there will be much less of the team in the MCU, opening up the door for other Marvel Cosmic characters with potentially big personalities
  • Starfox, the brother of Thanos in comics, would play well alongside other speculated characters like Howard the Duck, Pip the Troll, Quasar, Moondragon, Phyla-Vell and Nova
  • πŸ“ˆ +2,000% increase in copies sold this week versus the previous week after the Senior Film Writer of Variety tweeted from The Eternals movie premiere that Harry Styles has joined the MCU as Eros
