Another cheap investment book could be Punisher #4 from the 1987 ongoing series. It is the first app. of Microchip. He is the Punishers tech guy like Q for James Bond.


I think the word "appearance" is often times taken too literally, meaning a full visual shot of the character being needed.
For me, an original story that makes everyone aware of a never before seen character, but in reference only, is more of a "first mention", but if it includes even one panel that shows their likeness, it should be considered the 1st app. When a label states either "cameo" or "full appearance", I'm not at all bothered. For anyone new to comics, this is information.
That said, 1st appearance shouldn't, and doesn't automatically mean more valuable. Even though 180 is gaining a larger "fan base" (probably because it's more affordable), the Market has decided that 181 is the more desirable; Wolverine is on the cover, he's part of the whole story, and we can see what he can do.
Applying the Hulk 180-181 scenario to X-Factor 5 & 6, five and one eighty kind of trade off. There is more dialogue and panels in 5, but not much in the way of likeness, whereas 180 we get a full shot, but not much text/dialogue. 6 & 181 gives us everything.
Then there's Jimmy Olsen #134 and Forever People #1, with only a 3 month gap between issues. Right now 9.8 examples of both are separated by $5,000 (in favor of J.O. 134).
Bottom line- The Market will always decide which comic is more valuable.

Yeah, not a whole lot of fanfare for someone like Darseid.

It's been a long time since I read X-Factor #5. The best I can remember is seeing Apocalypse in shadow on the last page. I honestly don't remember him appearing more than once in that issue.

That Superman Ali book is scorching for obvious reasons, killer artwork doesn't hurt either. I have a high grade Whitman variant of this one, def a keeper! My second favorite treasury next to Supes vs Spidey

Because introducing the Weapon X program would be a good way to introduce non-comic readers to X-23.

Announcement came two days ago, and prices are already climbing.

9.8's are going for $150 already, I paid $50 for one a month ago

It's been touched on in the movies before, but not extensively. I pick them up cheap on eBay and in $1 bins when I find them.

Because when people read MCP #72 they realize what a good story is, and then they realize how lame X-23 is.

Now if you can figure out a way to get those non-comic book readers to become comic book readers, we will have a winner.

If the BWS art isn't enough to get them to open the comic, they're a lost cause

I recently came across and purchased a few copies and the full run. Perfect timing.
