Blind Adam’s Hidden Gems Vol. 46

Greetings to my Comics Heating up and Awesomesauce families. Thank you all for reading this each and every week. Thank you all for listening to my podcast on youtube. Thank you all for the friendship, encouragement, advice, and surport. I am so blessed to have you all in my life.

Before we make the money on comics, allow me to give a few random thoughts on a few things. First off, Logan was a great end of the X-Men era of movies. Loved it and it brought a tear to my eyes. Iron Fist was a fun ride on Netflix, the critics need to just watch TV and shut the f-up. The Girl Scouts need to do cookies twice a year, not once a year. Why only eight to twelve cookies in a damn box? Finally, whatever happened to the Gwen becoming Venom book? Well, lets make some money on some comics cause you can’t teach that

1. Godzilla #21 – This issue has Godzilla fighting Devil Dinosaur. Devil Dinosaur and Moon Girl is a hot series so Devil’s fans might seek stuff like this out. just a fun comic that is $5-10 or less

2. Godzilla #24 – wow still need to see that 2014 Godzilla movie. Godzilla in hell was a great comic. This is the final bronze age issue of Godzilla, King of the Monsters as Marvel gave up the goods to Godzilla after this. Final issues from this era do well $10

3. Marvel Team Up #63#64 – Spiderman and Iron Fist team up for the first time. Ties up all the loose ends from the original Iron Fist series. After #15, this is a great spec as Iron Fist is hot and Spiderman stuff always sells. Marvel Team Up issues are very cheap and a lot of fun to collect $5-10

4. Essential Iron Fist Volume 1 – speaking of Danny Rand, wow, that show was amazing. Vin Jones knocked it out of the park. This collects Marvel Premiere #15-25, Iron Fist #1-15, Marvel Team Up #63-64, and Powerman & Iron Fist #48-50. this is out of print and on Amazon goes for $22-40. I am sure a lcs has it at cover or discounted somewhere

5. Deadpool #54 and #55 (1997 series) – well a Deadpool vs the Punisher series is coming out, however, the first Deadpool/Punisher fight was in this two part story and is quit difficult in the wild $40 and up

6. Deadpool #27 Superhero Squad Variant (2008 series) – Wow, Marvel did a Super Hero Squad variant month to promote it’s awesomely fun show. This variant is #awesomesauce and cheap $10

7. Speed Racer #38 (Now Comics) – While trying to find an IDW Speed Racer issue, the one with the Locke and Key preview in it, I discovered that this was the final issue of the Now Comics series. Wow, didn’t realize it lasted 38 issues and now I want a lapdance to the Speed Racer theme song. happy hunting

8. Hot Dog Magazine #3 – has a nifty Wizard of Oz cover. No real spec value what-so-ever, just memories of the third grade when it was comics, chasing girls on the playground, and Ellios Pizza with after school cartoons. Wow, I am still doing most of this stuff… smile on face #awesomesauce

9A. Marvel Age #12 – So Venom is becoming a movie. Let’s not forget about the not so new Black Costume Spiderman appearances that don’t get much love. This is the first and pre-dates Secret Wars #8, $10-25

9B. Talking Venom Action Figure Toybiz 1992 – OK not a comic, however, this is like the second or third Venom action figure. How many times do you get a Venom figure that says “I want to eat your brains”. This figure does well on the secondary market, mint-in-package, is the way to go but loose is great as well. Just make sure it works $15 and up

10. Powerman and Iron Fist #73 (Volume 1) – was not reprinted and has a early Rom the Spaceknight appearance it. Is cheap but just great $5

11. Cry for Dawn #3 Horror Con Variant – I need to hire a few redheads like this. This was a very limited variant of Cry for Dawn #3. Only 350 or less and around 150 of them are autographed and have a Joseph Michael Lisner sketch on em. happy hunting

12. Amazing Spiderman Annual #14 – this is a classic Frank Miller cover team-up with Dr. Strange and is a tough find in high grade $5 and up

13. Tales of the Legion #325 – this issue gives the history of Daxum and Krypton. I am loving Mon-el on Supergirl and after watching last nights episode, I believe this issue was used in part as source material $5

14. Legion 3 & 4 (Volume 4) – First Mon-el as Valor. These can be found in dollar boxes and are just great additions to anyone that loves Mon-el from the Supergirl show, or Superman history in general, and wants to collect and read his comics

15. Teen Love Stories #1, 2, 3 – Warren Magazines. Warren is know for things like Vampirella, Creepy, and Eerie, but you don’t see these teen romance magazines in the wild all that often. The first issue goes for $40 on its own

16. Batman Mad love Coloring Book – can we please stop with the damn adult coloring books? I just don’t get it, however, I think the Mad Love one can do well in the after market. Cover price for now

17. Deadly Hands of King Fu #10 – Watch Iron Fist on Netflix. It is that damn good. I will buy you pizza if you don’t like it. I will come cook you pizza if you don’t like it, however, this is the first appearance of the Steel Serpent, a major Iron Fist villain $5-10

18. Amazing Spiderman #258 – why is this key Venom appearance so undervalued? Peter learns that the suit is alive and trying to bound to him. Maybe with the movie this will go up, $10

19. Amazing Spiderman Annual #7 – when watching Logan, they showed the Spiderman Homecoming trailer. I think the Vulture is going to be big. This is cheap Vulture appearance that is worth digging for as original numbered annuals are so cheap $5-10

20. Adventure Comics #305 – Mon-el helps create the Legion ring. Mon-el is the bomb on Supergirl and low grade Adventure Comics form this era are so cheap and feature Legion, Superboy, Supergirl, and those darn super pets. Just snag the grade you can afford

Well, once again, thank you guys for everything. Thank you for being my friends. I love you guys. I hope to see you all at a show sometime soon

now that I fade away I find myself obsolete

    I believe you owe me some pizza good sir as I think that the production of Iron Fist was absolutely awful. No joke here —-and I can’t be the only one who thinks this. One of the most boring POS I have seen in a while and I couldn’t take anymore, so I quit after 5 episodes…..yes, it was that boring. Not sure what Marvel would expect with this combo of crappy acting, poor story and bad screenwriting. It’s even worse than the Luke Cage production. Other than Jessica Jones, the Marvel experience on Netflix is pretty awful.

    • Richard Sean says:

      ^ people have different taste and wait you didn’t mention Daredevil, don’t think that falls anywhere near awful especially season 2.

      Jessica Jones in my book was TERRIBLY SLOW AND DRAGGED OUT.

      But see what I mean different tastes. Anyhow I really dig that deadpool #27 variant.

    • Anthony says:

      I am four episodes in and do not think it is bad. I guess different people have different tastes. The speed is slow but it is building.

      • Vann says:

        Absolutely…..different interests/tastes for different folks. I was actually very excited to check all of these out, so my acute disappointment was a surprise. I’m thinking that Marvel and DC’s respective positions on the big screen vs TV format are emblematic of their current success/failure rates. IE Marvel rules the movie theater while DC rules the TV format and neither have successfully (consistently) transitioned into the other’s territory as of yet. I’m sure that will change though…..

    • Kraig says:

      I agree, Iron Fist was awful. Just……awful.

    • Andrew Cantrell says:

      I haven’t seen it yet but I have heard mixed reviews. You didn’t like Luke Cage, and better yet put Jessica Jones over Luke Cage?!? Interesting.

      • Vann says:

        Yep. I think the story and acting were far superior in JJ. I also think the creators really had a good grasp on the terror and fear that the Purple Man brought throughout that whole season. I have no idea how they are going to top it though… guess is that future seasons won’t be nearly as good.

  2. Alan says:

    I really enjoy your posts. Please keep it going.

  3. David Billadeau says:

    How about Marvel Team Up annual #4?
    It has Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Moon Knight, Purple Man, Kingpin and is written by Frank Miller!
    Or MTU annual #7 with New Mutants and Cloak and Dagger?

  4. Love your posts but you if think a Michael Keaton vulture is going to be big I have to deduct a few credit points

    • Anthony says:

      That’s a tough call. Usually the Vulture is shown as an old man. So Keaton, who is old, is a good choice age-wise. He also was Birdman, but on the flip side was Mr. Mom. (Ok that was a classic movie) who would you like to see play the character or do you think the should have skipped him all together.

      • Andrew Cantrell says:

        Visually I think Michael Berryman, though he might be too big. You know what would be hilarious is Larry David. I love some Keaton, and liked him in Birdman, but its hard to have the same character do many different characters (to me he is always Batman). This is why I wish I had all those old Wizards when they did the who should be who stuff in movies.

      • Anthony says:

        I have met Michael Berryman a couple of times. He is a cool cat. The hairless thing is weird but he explains it well.

  5. What is the deal with Master of Kung-Fu#10? Steel Serpent first appears in Iron Fist#1, and Master of Kung Fu was continued from the numbering of Special Marvel Edition, but as far as I can tell, Steel Serpent didn’t appear in Special Marvel Edition#10.

    • Anthony says:

      I think he meant Deadly Hands of King Fu #10

    • Anthony says:

      I updated it to reflect the correct first appearance of Steel Serpent. Davos appears at a later time but this is the first steel serpent

      • Oh, I see Deadly Hands#10 is the first and only appearance of an unrelated character who is not named in the issue, lol. Then 5 months later, Iron Fist#1 comes out. In general, Deadly Hands’ magazine-size issues are hard to come by in nice condition, so they’re worth $$, but I wouldn’t spec heavily on this in relation to Iron Fist’s Steel Serpent.

      • Anthony says:

        I wouldn’t either but it is the first appearance of the (unreleased unnamed) character who is known by the same name. Still a fun little Marvel book.
