Paid .50 cents for this one. I probably did alright. Of course I also paid for grading, and shipping twice.

I think what he is talking about is ROI. You'll get a greater return on your money if you pick up a couple of the other "sleeper" books vs. ~10% returns on IM55.

I guess I'll do my research on these potential sleepers since you guys are not being forthcoming. But in reality I have the thanos and infinity gauntlet keys I cate about besides IM55 so I'm good either way.

I don't know what they're referring to, but these are what I would consider worth buying:

Captain Marvel #26 (1st Thanos cover, though weak, 2nd appearance. It's a terrible rollout that Thanos had.)

CM #33 - Killer Thanos cover. Origin, too, but people don't seem to care about those things anymore.

Strange Tales #178 - 1st Magus.

Warlock #10 - Thanos cover. Thanos vs. Magus.

These are common, common books...but not so much in ultra high grade.

I'll take a guess at this game and say:

Avengers king-size Ann #7 - 1st appearances of the Mind, Space, and Reality Infinity Gems

Marvel Two-In-One Ann #2 - 1st appearances of Lord Chaos and Master Order. Story concludes.

Marvel Premiere #1 - First appearance of Him as Adam Warlock. First appearance of the Soul Gem (one of the Infinity Stones).

yup Thor 165, but MP 1 is the 1st time called "Adam". kinda silly but relevant.

"HIM" was named "Adam" by a guy whose initials are "HE"

So HE named HIM Adam

Good picks....CM 26 is the 1st app of Death, not just the 2nd Thanos....that book IMO is the biggest sleeper of all of the Infinity saga books.I have a sweeeeet raw copy, which will be subbed this weekend and screened for a 9.8.

Warlock 10 may also be a sleeper...1st In-Betweener.

Avengers Annual 7 is also a sleeper, in 9.8...this book dropped a couple hundred in FMV a few years back when SS 44 was labeled as the 1st App of the Infinity Gauntlet, I'd argue AA 7 is the real key, of those 2....and much tougher in 9.8. Daddy also has a cherry raw copy of this book, a 9.8 candidate....hells yeah👌👍

The 7th Infinity Stone is Ego.

This Stone was discovered by Loki. In the Ultraverse, there is an omnipotent being, Nemesis, who is the source of the 6 Stones. The 7th is her consciousness.

The 8th Infinity Stone is Rhythm.

There is also a 9th Stone. The CONTINUITY STONE (gem).

I may have a few of these....although not in high grade. Had to settle for the Milestones edition of IM#55 as it's just out of my range, unless I'm willing to sell off my entire collection...

No love for Thanos Quest...or Infinity Gauntlet? Are these not going to be part of this Infinity War storyline? I thought those basically kicked off the Infinity "Stuff".


My Silver Surfer 44 should be a 9.8. I was a rookie at this slabbing business and it was my first submission...I didn't know "general waviness" was considered a defect..it was the only grading note and I it's otherwise a perfect copy (no visible defects). A press should give it a legitimate shot at 9.8 (or better) so I'll likely resubmit at a later date.

No love for these books either. I thought Warlock 15 was the first mention of their being more than just the soul gem...but I flipped through it last night and did not see where it was. It's a good Warlock story and I think a sweet cover.

If you're a Thanos fan and haven't read Logan's Run 6, I recommend grabbing a reader copy off ebay cheap...short story, but a good read.

If your Surfer #44 was downgraded for the "waviness", then it should be given back to CGC for review. Every copy of that book (and, indeed, many copies Marvel printed from 1990-1992), has that waviness to one degree or another. It's how they were made.

Collector DocBrown private msg quote post Address this user
Also, many Marvels during 1990-1991 had a "crunch" in the middle of the back cover, that was caused by a defective roller. CGC downgraded my otherwise 9.6 copy of SS #34 to 9.2, because whomever was looking at it didn't know this.

It's very, very, very common. It was difficult, occasionally impossible, to find a copy without this defect during that time period.

I agree. I have just about the entire run from 34 up to the mid 50's Silver Surfer and just about all have that waviness to them and I don't know if I've encountered one that wasn't unless it was pressed or flattened by other mechanical means. That's what lead me astray thinking it didn't mater.

I don't think there's a single finger bend or spine tick on the thing...corners are perfect. But I know it's a 9.8, and I'm not looking to sell it (likely ever) so it's not a high priority for me...However if I have it regraded, I'm thinking CBCS as I'm done with the newton rings. It was a year ago, so I've passed that point of asking for a second opinion (for free).

Edit: Of course if I get the 9.8 on the SS 44, then my OCD won't let me settle for a 9.6 for SS 34 as the rest of the infinity saga books I have graded are 9.8s! Actually, I wasn't looking for 9.8's for most of these...happened to grab them when others weren't paying attention on ebay for what I would have paid for a 9.6...

@JLS_Comics, where did this list come from? It's got reprints and "what-if" stories that aren't part of the regular continuity. Not sure they really "count."

Also, surprised Logan's Run 6 is part of Thanos War as it was a solo shot/story not necessarily part of that saga...although it was in that time-frame.

Seems to be missing some books between SS 35 and 51...I know there are books in there that span the gap between Thano's Rebirth (SS 34/Thanos Quest) and the Infinity Guantlet saga.

COLLECTOR JLS_Comics private msg quote post Address this user
It does have reprints and such on it. Completionists would be interested in anything relating to the story arc. Logan's Run 6 is included because of the backup story.

Silver Surfer 34 and 35 are a story called "Rebirth of Thanos" as well as the IG story arc. Thanos is worked in to stories lines in the following issues such as "Where is Thanos", etc. It's actually at issue 38 that Thanos' story goes to the Thanos Quest miniseries. It's at issue 40 when Silver Surfer is put on trial for Thanos' death

It comes from comicbookdb.com, if you think some things are wrong I'd recommend requesting changes to that database

@JLS_Comics Another comic that may be of interest in this overall story is Marvel Team-Up #55. Not a Thanos story, but it is Spiderman & Adam Warlock. I have seen it listed as the first appearance of the Gardener and first appearance of the Power Gem and the Time Gem.

I believe this is part of the story that was reprinted in the early 80's as Warlock Volume 2. That 6 issue reprint series includes parts of:
Strange Tales 178-181
Warlock 9-15
Marvel Team-Up 55
Avengers Annual 7
Marvel Two-In-One Annual 2

The list you posted includes all of these issues except for MTU 55.

Just an FYI to those interested.

Marvel Team-Up 55 is a definite sleeper if we're talking stones (gems).

I have pretty much everything except for most of those modern x-overs from Gauntlet, War and Crusade.

General waviness is not a defect that will keep a book out of 9.8.

Marvels from that time period pretty much all have waviness present, not sure.I guess that Marvel cut back on printing costs and used cheaper paper stock
