Captain Marvel Adventures #80 - 1948 Origin of
Captain Marvel Adventures
#80-1948 contain the first re-telling of his origin since his
first appearance in Whiz Comics #1-1940. It has a classic
cover showing Captain Marvel in the presence of Shazam the elder
who first gave him his powers in his underground temple.
This key book comes during one of the character's greatest
moments with his first motion picture in theaters in April,
2019. Here's a reasonably priced copy in good condition.

The Star Wars Vintage Collection Jabb's Tatooine Skiff is
currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com for an
August, 2019 release. Those who pre-ordered the Jabba Sail
Barge Khetanna that is arriving from HasLab in March, 2019 will
want to have this piece to complement that huge vehicle/playset.
You'll need two (one for Jabba's Skiff guards firing at the
skiff that holds prisoners Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca
and Lando Calrissian in Skiff Guard attire).
Shazam #1-35 Complete 1970s Series
Shazam #1-35 and Shazam Visits Portland Oregon in 1943! are
available on Ebay as a complete set minus one issue - Shazam
#28 (Black Adam). The seller is a long-time advertiser and
advisor of the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide and is a
very conservative grader so don't be fooled by the grades listed.
The Shazam movie is due in theaters in April, 2019 so this series is
going to get a lot of attention by new collectors. The Golden
Age Captain Marvel issues have been pricey for a long time without a
The original Captain Marvel was revived during the
1970s by DC Comics and this series was part of its
revival. DC and the originating publisher
Fawcett Comics had been involved in
lengthy and costly lawsuits during the 1940s as DC argued
that Captain Marvel was too similar to Superman and took Fawcett to
court to prevent them from continuing their successful comic book
titles such as Whiz Comics and Captain Marvel Adventures which also
spawned many other Captain Marvel related titles.
Fawcett eventually ran out of money and sales of Captain Marvel
started to fade leading to the company's collapse. DC would
take over Captain Marvel and other properties years later.
They wanted to bring back the character, but acted too late before
Marvel Comics issued their own version of Captain Marvel during the
1960s and has never relinquished that name. DC was forced to
use the original Captain Marvel's magical phrase Shazam in order to
give the character a title name.
Ms. Marvel #1-23 Complete 1970s Series
If you've been trying to acquire the entire Ms. Marvel series of
issues from the 1970s before the Captain Marvel movie hits theaters
(as they're sure to continue to increase in price), I found the
complete run at a very nice price on Ebay. The
conditions of the issues are very nice.
Deathlok Sasquatch Wave Marvel Legends
The Deathlok Marvel
Legends figure from the Sasquatch Wave has had a price drop on
Amazon.com. X-23 from

selling for $11.70. This is a good time to pick up these
figures if you had previously passed on them when they initially
became available. A lot of collectors tend to wait until items
are put on clearance or have a price reduction, but sometimes wait
too long hoping they are still available at these prices.
Don't wait and miss out.

Hulk Epic Collection
Marvel Comics has been producing a wonderful series of books
called Epic Collection since cancelling its long running Marvel
Masterworks series a few years ago. The Epic Collection
follows a similar path as the Masterworks series, but does go in a
different direction as well. There are the legendary titles
that consists of the Marvel Age of Comics from the 1960s where the
core of the Marvel titles began. The Epic Collection captures
those from the beginning of issue #1 and for some cases in the
middle of some of those then ongoing titles. The Epic
Collection has also gone on to feature segments of storylines in the
1970s, 80s, 90s and so on giving collectors the opportunity to

onset of a given title. I will try and bring visibility to

#1-3, 5 / Amazing Spider-Man #14 / Tales To Astonish #59 / Journey

Stormtrooper Mimban Black Series & The Vintage
The hot Star Wars Black Series 6 inch Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure
from Solo: A Star Wars Story has been really tough to find in
stores. It was originally a Walmart exclusive. I
found a listing on Ebay that has a few in stock. It is
being sold by a seller outside of the US, but seems to have very
good feedback. Also I came across the soon to be released 3.75
inch version of the figure in the Vintage Collection line.
That figure should be in stores in the fall, but as you can see from
the buying history a lot of collectors aren't going to wait and are
purchasing now instead of having to work to find it at retail.

One of the trending books on the collector market the last year and
a half has been X-Men #266 which features the first full appearance
