Comics That Are Flying Under The Radar

011223D-1024x536 Comics That Are Flying Under The RadarDon’t miss out! Here are a couple of books that I suspect will rise in value in the near future. This is great news for comic enthusiasts.

Heavy Is The Head That Wears The Crown…

A tale of two Kings. One King owns all of the technological wonders that one rich nation can contain. The other King is at least 20,000 leagues ahead of his adversaries. In case you haven’t guessed, I’m speaking about the leader of Wakanda King, T’Challa, (aka the Black Panther_ and his majesty of the sea, Prince Namor (aka the Submariner).

It’s no secret that these two kings have had their moments. They’ve battled each other on and off the planet as allies and enemies, yet it is still fair to say that there is no love lost between the two. They share their love of technology, privacy, and almost Sue Richards aka Invisible Woman. In Marvel Knights 4 #21, T’challa stands down on trying to pursue a fling with Invisible Woman out of respect to Reed.

Ok, back to the two Kings. There has been bad blood for damn near forty years, and they’ve been on the same teams at the same time. In all seriousness, The Rise of the Black Panther #2 will only continue to go up in price. GoCollect has a 9.6 graded copy valued at $60.00, which is a very reasonable book to grab before it’s out of the atmosphere because we all know what movies can do for a book.

Galactus Is In The House

In the history of being a villain, Galactus has got to be, without a doubt, one of the meanest villains ever. Guys, in case you didn’t know, he eats planets!! …HE EATS PLANETS!! If he’s not the meanest, then he has been sitting next to the man… sitting next to the man who is. With all the talk on the internet about Galactus being featured in a movie or next up for a show I’m going to point you to Fantastic Four #243; although Fantastic Four #244 is a key.

Galactus also has a few more books that I would suggest just as a collector. I’m totally spec-ing… (I wonder if Webster’s Dictionary could make this a thing? “Spec-ing”) …on Origin of Galactus #1 and Fantastic Four #48; GoCollect currently has a graded 9.6 valued at $33,000.00 (Yes, I know we can all dream about the latter, but GoCollect has a lower grade 4.0 currently valued at $1,400.00); which is a great price for someone seriously trying to build a foundation for their private collection.

Fantastic Four #243 GoCollect 9.6 at $200.00
Fantastic Four #244 GoCollect 9.6 at $140.00
Origin of Galactus #1 GoCollect 9.6 at $85.00

… besides, Fantastic Four #48 doesn’t technically qualify as a comic book flying under the radar. I know what you’re thinking. Why I oughta…

Some Secrets Were Meant To Be Kept Forever

Well, this is my sentiment when it comes to the next comic or comics flying under the radar. It has carried on through multiple titles in the Marvel Comic Universe. However, one could say that the invasion started with Fantastic Four issue #2 in 1962 as the Skrull race vowed to take out the Fantastic Four.

In recent times, the new Marvel Studios series Secret Invasion is mesmerizing fans new and old by re-introducing the alien Skrulls as the most recent title in a mini-series; needless to say, this type of exposure has comic heads heading to their local comic shops snatching back issues and newer copies off of the shelves, and I’m no different. I started going through my boxes trying to find my complete set 1-8 (Variants included) of Secret Invasion that Marvel put out back in 2008. Here are a few that I had to reacquaint myself with. Just remember, that there is a grade for every collector.

Fantastic Four #2 GoCollect has a graded 9.2 currently valued at $46,000.00
and on the other hand, a 4.0 at $2350.00 (This falls in the doesn’t technically qualify as a comic book flying under the radar category).

Secret Invasion #1 GoCollect has a graded 9.6 currently valued at $46.00

From Here To Infinity

One of the hottest movies to shine on the silver screen over the last four years has been ‘Avengers: End Game,’ partly because of its heroes, the Avengers, but equally important was the film’s super-villain, Thanos. Comic Book enthusiasts everywhere have been buying anything to do with the Avengers and Thanos, but it seems that the main focus should be on the Infinity Gauntlet itself with all of the stones. The very first mention of the Infinity Gauntlet can be found in The Silver Surfer #44. GoCollect has a graded 9.6 valued at $220.00.
