@Comicnewbie in case you missed it too... Sarcasm.

Hate for you to mistake it as a serious statement, being new and all.

The thing with me is that the book seems to be very plentiful and Im not to sure how much more upside there can be with it.

Ha! I've been saying that for YEARS about ASM #129 and Hulk #181. I used to say that back when I worked at a comic store, 30 years ago. And still, they keep going up.

Good point. And try to get white pages if you can. Those always sell for a premium.

I'm STILL short #2 and #3!


Jacob, I’d be happy to make up a 9.6 set of Wolverine 1-4 Newsstand for myself!

But I literally have hundreds of Bronze Age issues of all types that are Newsstand Editions. Most are ungraded. But if there are certain issues of a title that you are looking for, send me an email or a text and I would be happy to look for you. For example, would you be interested in a Tales of the Green Lantern Corps #1 (1981)?

I'd say Omega Men has more room to grow, but that Wolverine cover is so iconic. It's a matter of personal preference. Which do you like?

I would say Omega Men 3 is the better choice. Even though Wolverine was a limited (4 issues?) series, they would have still produced the hell out of a number one issue. So the supply is probably way less on a number three. Also, I believe Omega Men was the high-quality format ... direct sales only? That was still a relatively new thing. (I may be mis-remembering.)

Anyway, someone else said Lobo is undervalued, and I agree. One of these days soon I'm gonna have to go dig up my run of Omega Men, see if I kept it in decent condition all these years.

Not for investing but because I don't want to miss out on a new character that I don't really care about

Only paid $15 - says NM - we'll see when it gets here.....

You did alright, assuming it does come in at 9.4 or better. I saw a 9.8 CGC copy went for over $200 on the bay.

Actually $275 with shipping.

I sent mine out for grading last week. Man, I hope those prices hold. Mine should come back a 9.8 and if it does, I'm gonna sell that thing just as fast as I can. TBWL's is cool and all, but how does he stay? He's basically a worse, more demented version of Joker? You can't have two Jokers running around.

I feel you, though, Drogio. I recently bought Batman White Knight #3 and Green Lanterns #38 for the same reason. It's an addiction. And when I get TT #12 back and it's a 9.8? I'm gonna have a real hard time parting with it, for no good reason at all.

Checked out eBay sales and go gocollect.com (average about $200 last 16 sales). Recent bid auctions have it for slightly less...buy it nows about $250. If it's white pages seems a good deal. If it's off white then you might do better to wait for a bidding auction to come up...



It's OW-W. Good?


White pages are better and more sought after (hold better value). Ow-w is better than just OW...i would not go lower Than off white-white from an investment perspective unless it's a super key hard to find/acquire book. That's me, though.
