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
acquire some important stories that was not published during the
onset of a given title. I will try and bring visibility to
some of the Epic Collection series that have come out and ones that
are in the upcoming release schedule. Here are some of the
Hulk Epic Collection that contains issues from the Hulk's beginnings
in the 60s and some that have reprinted his stories later on in his
long illustrious career. Starting from the left the first book
contains Incredible Hulk #1-6 / Fantastic Four #12, 25-26 / Avengers
#1-3, 5 / Amazing Spider-Man #14 / Tales To Astonish #59 / Journey
Into Mystery #112. The second book contains Tales To Astonish
#60-96 / Material from Not Brand Echh #3. The third book
contains Tales To Astonish #97-101 / Incredible Hulk #102-117,
Annual 1 / Material from Not Brand Echh #9. There are of
course a few others which you can easily find by clicking on any of
the below images and then typing Hulk Epic Collection.
Another Venom related issue of Spider-man has really climbed up the

Ms. Marvel #1 featuring the first appearance of Ms. Marvel has been
amongst one of the hottest books on the market ever since it was
announced that a Captain Marvel movie would be produced by Marvel
Studios. That film is due in theaters in March, 2019.
The alter ego of both Ms. Marvel and the Captain Marvel in the
upcoming film is one and the same-Carol Danvers so there's a
definite correlation. Collectors have been shifting towards
1970s key collectors books as a many of the key books of the 1960s
have really reached a lofty price that is beyond most collectors. mycomicshop
has several copies of Ms. Marvel #1 in stock now in both

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
of Gambit (one of the X-Men). The prospects of a major motion
picture starring Channing Tatum as Gambit has been in the planning
for some time now. Additional interest has been fueled for
this reason. mycomicshop has several copies of this issue in
both CGC and non-certified in stock now.

only 1 day and has free shipping.
The latest Star Wars 6 inch
Black Series wave of figures consisting of Han Solo in Bespin
outfit, Rebel Trooper, Tobias Beckett and Grand Moff Tarkin are
showing up on Ebay ahead of many of the online retailers.
I found a seller that has several lots of the 4 key figures from
this wave which are selling out fast.
The flagship title of Marvel
Comics is Fantastic Four #1. Last few years collectors have
been going after Amazing Fantasy #15 and Hulk #1 and driving up
prices for those 2 books all the while passing up the title that
started it all. Here's a solid copy at a reasonable price for
a key issue.
Hot Toys and Sideshow
Collectibles are teaming up to produce the first Marvel
Studios: The First Ten Years Sixth Scale Collectible figure.
The figure is based on Marvel Studios’ Head of Visual Development,
Ryan Meinerding’s concept art of Captain America from
Civil War. The
Marvel Captain America Concept Art Version Marvel Sixth Scale Figure
will be available the fourth quarter of 2018 (between October and
December). Pre-orders are currently being taken.
The flagship Marvel Comics title
the Fantastic Four will be returning to publication after a couple
of years of having been canceled. The first issue is due in
comic book shops in August, 2018. The latest action figures
based on the four main characters have slowly been released over the
last year and a half at Walgreens stores nationwide.
Initially the Invisible Woman was released followed by Mr. Fantastic
then the Human Torch with the Thing being the last figure in the
series. I found a set of the first three on Ebay at a
reasonable price considering these have sold out at Walgreens.
The Thing is currently found overseas and will eventually make its
way to the US.
June 2018 represents the 80th
birthday of Superman. Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created one
of the most famous and iconic characters ever. His landmark
debut in Action Comics #1 in June, 1938 started the superhero genre
and forever changed the comic book world and pop culture.
Here's a very intriguing listing on Ebay which consists of
CGC graded copies of Action Comics #1, Superman #1 (both of which
are reprints) along with original copies of Superman #4, 5 and 6.
Speaking of Ant-Man. The
actual Ant-Man character that actor Paul Rudd portrayed in the first
Ant-Man film and in the upcoming second film is Scott Lang who made
his first appearance in
Marvel Premiere #47 drawn by legendary artist John Byrne. This
issue has seen significant movement in the collector market for the
last few years. mycomicshop has several copies in stock
that will accommodate anyone's budget.
One of the most overlooked key
Marvel Comics first appearances of the Silver Age is Tales to
Astonish #44 (TTA) featuring the debut of the Wasp (Janet Van
Dyne). By comparison to her male counterpart the Ant-Man's
first appearances in Tales to Astonish #27 and #35 (first time in
costume) is multiples more expensive. I found one of the
highest graded copies of TTA #44 currently up for sale. With
the Ant-Man and the Wasp movie coming to theaters on July 6,
2018 interest will only increase for these characters' first
The first time Boba Fett made his
world wide debut was on TV during the Star Wars Holiday Special
in a short animated feature in 1978. The look was very distinctive
with cool-looking colors. The costume colors was updated for
his movie debut in The Empire Strikes Back. Hasbro and
a couple of other manufacturers have made versions of this figure in
past years. Now
Hot Toys has produced the very first 1/6th scale (12 inch)
figure of the Boba Fett animated look. Perusing through
Ebay I found a listing that is actually cheaper than found on
most web sites across the internet.
Specific Star Wars Jabba the Hutt
palace and sail barge related figures have seen considerable
interest ever since Hasbro Labs confirmed it will be
producing the Jabba Sail Barge Khetanna for a 2019 release. I
have sold several of these associated figures in recent months.
The Lando Calrissian in Sandstorm Outfit from the Vintage Collection
being one of the most sought after.
Here's an Ebay auction (left image)
which I found listed with bidding to end on July 4, 2018.
There are other examples which are listed in Ebay seller stores so you
don't have partake in bidding (right image).

Deadpool 2 is due in
theaters on May 18, 2018. Two of the hottest Marvel characters
in the film have seen a lot of activity for their first appearances in
the last few years. Cable and Deadpool's appearances in the
New Mutants title have seen considerable price increases and will
only continue to be fueled by many fans anticipating the upcoming
film's release. Cable first appeared in full in New Mutants #87
in 1990 and Deadpool debuted in New Mutants #98 in 1991 along
with two other significant characters Domino and Gideon. The
after market prices for these issues have seen significant price
jumps in recent years. They will continue to garner more
interest with the upcoming Deadpool movie that will introduce Cable.

estimated to be available in late 2018.

new platform called
in order to produce items that fans have been dreaming about, but
due to restrictions would not typically come to fruition at any of
the typical venues like Walmart or Toys R Us due to costs and other
logistics. They have initiated their first project needing
5000 backers to bring to life the Jabba Sail Barge (Khetanna) from
Star Wars Return of the Jedi in 2019. The deadline to
meet the threshold is April 3, 2018. If 5000 buyers commit to
purchasing this item by that date and time of 11:59 EST, then the

on or about February 28, 2019. You'll receive a 64 page
booklet detailing a behind the scenes preview of the design and
