  • ...based on Marvel movie news. In the past few months I've purchased:

    Marvel Super-Heroes #18 (first Guardians of the Galaxy)
    Uncanny X-Men #141 and #142 (Days of Future Past)
    Invincible Iron Man #55 (first Thanos)
    Nova #1 (first Nova)
    Captain America #117 (first Falcon)
    Incredible Hulk #271

    And I'm still shopping.

    Marvel Premiere #47 & #48 should be on your list then. Antman movie is said to be based on these two issues. http://comicbookrealm.com/series/1311/0/marvel-marvel-premiere


    Yup...those will be added to the list as well. I hadn't heard that. Thanks for the heads up!

  • I got #48 for $10 including S&H on eBay. Looking around for #47 to see if I can get a nice price on that.

  • I picked up #48 for $1 at a Comic Shop in Montana a few months ago..it was only in FN or so, but still a steal.

    Nice to know I'm not the only one.

    In other news, rumor has it that the Nova Corps will make an appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I picked up Nova #1 a few months back in anticipation of this.

  • That is a really good find. Do you have any tips on how to locate these sort of issues?

  • I'm literally addicted to the site comicbookmovie.com. Anytime I hear an inkling of a rumor for a character appearing in a Marvel movie, I start scouring eBay for their first appearance. Not really any sort of science to it.

    I recently got Fantastic Four #52 which is the first appearance of Black Panther. I've been looking for a reasonable Strange Tales 110 which is the first appearance of Dr. Strange, but it's been tough to find a copy in decent enough condition, but low enough price.
