  • I noticed that my copy of X-Men Vol. 2 #1c has gone up in value recently. The other three regular copies did not. Are you telling me a poster of Omega Red included in the book is what's caused this increase? A poster? Really?

    And this is because he is allegedly showing up in the new Black Widow movie? Didn't he show up in the last Deadpool movie in the giant prison already?

    Either way, this is quite silly. We comic book collectors have gone too far.

  • This is what makes you think things have gone nuts?
    I think collectors paying thousands apon thousands of dollars for for a single comic would have triggered that a while back Laughing

  • Expensive comic books don't freak me out too much as long as the books in question are old and not just speculation about appearances in the MCU movies or TV shows. I do get a bit shocked at CGC prices for 9.8 or higher. Those seem a bit steep.

  • It's not collectors that are driving prices up, it's speculators/flippers/investors/internet influencers. It is ruining the hobby for the real collectors out there.

  • not that it matters to me, but i upped the value because i came across them in a different price check...Omega Red is a popular villain already and im not sure about the speculator side, i just try to follow the sales data...Omega Red is in my top 10 favorite villains, and since "technically" this is like a preview book that came out prior to a first app, this one is the only one with the Omega Red poster...go look at marvel previews (the bigger series), a ton of them went up exponentially...some to a crazy degree lol...i try to stay on top of this stuff, and its hard lol...i do my best to keep us up to date, but i just cant keep up when it seems EVERY single first appearance is going nuts...

    i try Brick wall lol

    and brucifer, where was omega red in DP? which guy in the ice box? i never heard that before...

    i read somewhere in passing he was gonna show up in wanda vision, then didnt lol, but again i also read that Mister Fantastic or Doctor Strange were gonna show up too...lol
