  • 1st appearance of Agatha Harkness, Franklin Richards’ nanny and a mentor to Scarlet Witch
  • 1st appearance of Ebony, Agatha's cat who turns into a demon-like creature
  • First mention of the name Franklin Richards
  • [October 2021 - Agatha will be featured in her own Disney+ series titled Agatha: House of Harkness]
  • πŸ’¬ BRY'S COMICS SUGGESTS: BUY
  • There is potential for this book to spike once Marvel begins to market the Disney+ series, Agatha: House of Harkness, a major surprise announcement last month
  • The introduction of Franklin Richards is another fan theory favorite for the MCU which is bonus spec for this book, similar to the bump that Eros gave Iron Man #55
  • Even though I recommend this book as a BUY, keep in mind we won’t see this TV series for awhile and I believe other upcoming shows will draw attention away from the book, allowing it to cool down
