- 1st appearance of the Black Panther (T'Challa king of Wakanda).
- Last month we got the absolutely heartbreaking news that the immensely talented Chadwick Boseman had passed away from cancer. He was just 43
- Boseman was, of course, the man that wore the Black Panther crown.
- Since his passing, there has been a massive wave of interest in Black Panther that has spurred books like Black Panther #2 (1st Shuri) to new heights.
- This week, the 1st appearance of the man himself is making solid gains.
- An 8.5 copy broke the all-time record in grade at $3,840 (up from $3,600).
- A 4.0 copy hit $680 (up from $575) while a 3.5 copy hit $525 (up from $500). Both also records in grade.
- Some collectors are speculating that the mantle will go to the character's sister, Shuri.
