    1. Yeah, Hulk 228 might be a very good book to get…If you can still find them. The Captain America #192 is a good one as well. I think you were talking about both these books a few weeks back. I did happen to have these in the pc already but picked up a few extra of each just in case. Looking like it will be a good gamble.

  1. I still question these numbers. I know one seller who sold more copies of Eternals #1 and #2 by himself last week than what covprice shows.

      1. Yea, jscomics. They sold quite a few 5 packs of 1 and 2 but also a bunch of singles too the last couple of Sunday nights.

    1. Might depend on the cut off date that Covrpice compiles everything. I hear you though. Seems last couple of weeks there have been some dealers with a ton of copies selling them all at once. A lot sold!

      1. I was thinking maybe the market would be flooded a little, but demand is still very strong. I talk about Eternals a lot because I went all in with the title a couple years ago, but I am still a little shocked at how big it has become, Especially issue #1. Price wise it’s closing in on a lot of mid level, bronze age keys and has surpassed others already. Crazy! Once Marvel releases concrete info on the direction the Eternals movie/franchise is headed, 9.8 copies of #1 could very well jump to or get very close to 2 grand. By the time the movie is released who knows where pricing will be.

      2. Also may depend if the bulk listings get ruled out as outliers. 10 and 5 copy lots will go for big money but may show as one sale. With a big sale with a well above average number, they could be excluded

  2. What happens in 8 days if Eternals isn’t one of the movies announced by Marvel for the 8 slots? They could be misdirectioning everyone and hesitant to explore other unpopular past properties after Inhumans tanking.

      1. Agreed. The MCU is an entirely different beast and the staple of the Marvel universe when it comes to the screen. The lower budget shows have had some success but the movies will always have bigger budgets, better creative teams and so on…

    1. Always a possibility. “IF” that happened prices would go down but I think enough interests has been brought front and center that the property would still be in demand…just not nearly as much.

  3. I read all the Eternal comics about 5 years ago and I enjoyed the Kirby run some but not much else. Gilgamesh, Sersi and others leaking into the Avengers lineups and cameo’s helped keep them thought about but I can’t really name a break out star from the whole race.

    I’d love to get surprised by an Invaders movie set right after the end of Cap 1. Feature the 2nd Cap and Bucky, a whole slate of 40’s 50’s others can be included, more Howling Commandoes, maybe even an early Sgt Fury and more Dum Dum Dugan. Intro Namor to help Howard Stark retrieve the Tesserac from the ocean like avengers 1 said he did. Intro the android Human Torch as a lead in to a future FF torch. More Peggy Carter. Maybe Kazar and Logan pre metal claws in some 1950’s avengers story content. Huge chunk of real estate left untapped there that can be covered.

    A-Force or Lady Liberators.

    Pet Avengers

    Power Pack

    Korvac Saga as a lead in to a Contest of Champions story later.

    Defenders (Original with Hulk, Dr Strange and Valkerie working Silver surfer in and setting up something with Galactus later)

    I’d like to think something Fantastic or X but I’m suspecting that even when they do they’ll fly the Fox banner and not be counted as part of the big 8 coming. What’s the point in owning Fox if you aren’t going to release anything under their studios overseen by Marvel?

  4. I really think the next yearof spec will depend on next weeks reveal or marvel.looking forward to the panel .take care love ya all blind adam out
