A few months ago, I took a gamble on an auction with bad photos and scored big. A couple of weeks ago, I pressed my luck with another bad photo auction, and this one didn't turn out as well. I mean, the books are okay, but I probably wouldn't have bought them if I were able to see them a little better. As it is, I paid a little more than they're worth. Not real pleased with them, but only have myself to blame. I'll leave them in my collection - eventually they'll be worth a lot more.

They look nicer with the Mylite glamour shots.

TTA 42 and X-Men 20 are nice enough. TTA 43 has that stain in the bottom left, messed-up corner in the bottom right and a spine split problem. X-Men 16 has a tear in the cover (easiest to see where it crosses the big X). They're not awful, but I was hoping for better.

Very cool.

I still have one poster I kept from high school.




I use to pick these up off my lcs when they were finished with them for free back in high school.

assume thats an original sketch? What an amazing piece..Wood has always been such a tragic figure, so much talent but sadly dead by his own hand and so young still

@Darkseid_of_town

yes original through Heritage Auctions - agreed very tragic.
my son is only 13 so was hard to explain the talent/impact that Wally Wood had - I mean heck..when Steranko does an homage that's saying something!!

The Cap 312 is a CPV that was hiding in plain sight at the LCS. I guess Abomination is a thing again since the TTA90s the shop had were marked up on the wall. Got the #91 I need for my run though. Some other odds and ends throughout the week(s).

When did Reed get breasts?

@DrWatson clearly crossdressing for the cover and he is wearing a Harry Osborn wig as well.

Just noticed I was on a marvel picture hunt and ended up with all having a kind of picture frame or cut off color from the top and bottom of the cover sort of semi picture frame.

Whenever he wants. That’s the beauty of having elasticity 😉

With the trailer for Shang Chi showing the abomination it caught fire pretty fast

I was always quite partial to Avengers 20 thanks to his contributions to the book

Indeed. I love the manufactured FOMO.

Not entirely sure I agree regarding abomination. Character has been around awhile, has a decent backstory, and could easily be funneled into the coming Marvel pathway....its considered likely there will be a Thunderbolts group in the coming stories and this would be a great character to introduce and use later in the team. Slipping him into the early movies of this coming phase would allow for that...I think its a good book to have on its own merit and does have potential beyond
