@KatKomics You're right, Strange Tales 8.5's are well under $1,000...more like $600-$700 for completed sales. Strange Tales 135 was the very first comic that I started hoarding for resale purposes...I started buying them long before the first Iron Man movie. Honestly, they never popped in value anything close to the way you might see books pop today. The books that I was buying raw for $30-$50 eventually sold slabbed for $100-$200 but that's almost considered a loss by todays standards. I don't think Steranko was working at Marvel quite yet, I think his first cover on Strange Tales came a couple of years later.

figured out they were bringing back vision before I even got a chance to watch the show. The moment I opened ebay and saw all the west coast avengers 45's exploding in price. Regret not getting one before they exploded in price, I was planning on getting one about two weeks ago.

Well there's 185 of them on Ebay right now. This one seems particularly interesting (warning: image not for children):

45 was one of the ones I am missing.

Oh, well. I'm sure bleached vision won't last that long, and I'll grab it in a few years.


Does anyone know if there will be a season 2 or volume 2?

I feel like a second season might be leading toward Avengers Disassembled storyline.

They are definitely taking the approach that Wanda is under tremendous strain and pressure. IT certainly misses a lot when your dad isn't Magneto, but there's still time....

@Jabberwookie I think they've announced (or at least everyone is assuming) that this season will lead into the next Doctor Strange movie. I think (my speculation) that the TV series and movies will be fairly entwined, so hard to say if or when there will be second seasons of any particular show or what storylines they will follow.

This series is largely disappointing. Great actors and actresses, but inconsistent-to-poor writing. I don't care for the retcons.

I'm not really enjoying the series but I will watch the ending tonight. My 11 year old is loving it, but that might just be because her internet started convincing her to love long before it came out. Did this weeks episode cause any specific comic books to spike in price?

No idea what to invest in. Is Mephisto even important anymore? I thought he was supposed to show up in the series and do something of extreme significance.

I for one am happy not to have to deal with any weird spikes or FOMO tonight. I guess unless people start running to the Darkhold? It was already in Agents of SHIELD but I know that doesn't "count".

I feel like the finale didn't hit some note for me but I couldn't say why. It was a good arc; it was Wanda's emotions and her problem and she solved it.

Well, as an owner of a low grade FF 2 I was excited to see a Skrull at least. I'm trying to figure out the big picture purpose of the story. I guess it was to resurrect Vision, but that was not at all central to the plot. Maybe the other thing was to establish a credible basis for the limitless powers that Wanda possesses? I realize now that Wanda's powers are somewhat like The Force...they are whatever the writer needs them to be at that moment.

The first comic book show my wife liked, a take on powerful grief, very chick flick style. Watched it together.
Happened to go in a comic store today, got a West Coast Avengers 45 in a pretty high grade for $20, and I also own a FF2. Let’s blow that Silver Surfer 3 (which I do not own) right outa the water! (Speculation madness, sorry)

I was very disappointed. I really do not like when studios troll me. "Luke Skywalker" type moment....nothing. Famous actor cameo...Bently trolling. Quicksilver from the Fox universe....Ralph Boner. Don't hype big events if they don't come to fruition. I would probably have enjoyed the show more if the actors/studio didn't make these claims. Overall, we didn't get any new characters that we didn't already know going into the show. Maybe just white vision but I see him changing to regular vision eventually.

One thing I really do not understand is Evan Peters. How does he have super speed if he is just a normal person?

What? We got Woo! I kinda feel like we got Spectrum/Photon/Capt Marvel, etc. as well, I know she was in the Captain Marvel Movie, but that was a kiddo, no powers.

I really enjoyed the series...never read any of the hype so wasn't disappointed when characters or plot twists the internet said were coming didn't...shocking...cause internet speculation is never wrong!

This did bring back Vision, we know the Skrull are still a thing, brings Wanda more in line with her comic powers, was nice to see Woo and Darcy who I'm sure we'll see again in future Ant and Thor flicks...maybe other "TV" shows?? and of course maybe more Monica Rambeau

I think maybe people expected too much from a show?? although things may be 'related' to a movie you can't have them too intertwined because realistically most people who watch the movies won't have watched the shows (or read the comics!)...just enjoy it for what it is.

@KatKomics

I just expected some things to actually happen that were hyped/said by the actual participants in the show. If you don't want to raise expectations on a show perhaps don't mention a Luke Skywalker type scene and a cameo from an actor that I have always wanted to work with. Or "a casting I am surprised that hasn't leaked". Trolling fans that are invested in your stories is not a good look for a company.

We didn't even get Dr. Strange appearing. I thought that was a lock since this is supposed to lead into Dr. Strange 2. We didn't even get anything related to the multiverse.

@moodswing really!! I was unaware of any of that...does seem in poor taste for show participants to suggest things that had no chance of happening.

About the only thing we got re: Dr. Strange is that we now know that the Scarlett Witch is more powerful than the Sorcerer Supreme (is like taco supreme??) and we saw her using her astral self to study

I still think all these shows are going to be handcuffed in a way because you can't tie stories into movies or move narratives too far along as they relate to movies because you don't want too much backstory to be something that the audience has never seen or that can't be gone over again in 10 to 15 minutes as otherwise it would eat too much into the story the movie is trying to tell.

what was the SNL skit...lowered expectations?? - probably best going forward.

bet there are lots of people with buyers remorse to top everything off with all the comic prices spiking for what turned out to be meh!!..yup..white Vision....who will come back to be normal Vision...just like in the comics.

I thought Magneto was supposed to show up and save his daughter.
Also my off the wall theory is that the Scarlet Which is going to be the next super villain after all she is supposed to cause chaos and destroy the world according to the darkhold... does mephisto or “The Other”(Chthon)come to warp her mind.
If I remember in the agents of shield anyone who read the Darkhold was turned evil.
I may be all wet but just another iron in the fire of conspiracy theories.. 🖖

I liked it eventually. Episode 8 was the best I think.

Interested to see how this will all tie together. There are lots of ways it could go I think.

WCA #45 sold today, thanks for the advice on that. My very first sale ever.
