Welcome back, everyone,
If you were able to join us at our Fall 2018 Show last weekend, we hope you enjoyed it! Our next show has already been scheduled for Saturday, May 18th, 2019, so that you can make your plans in advance; we’d love to see you there. In the meantime, let’s look at this week’s fantastic graded auctions, shall we?
First up is a lovely copy of Star Wars #3 — yes, the original #3 that adapts part of A New Hope’s storyline for the first time. This is a perfect holiday gift for the Star Wars fan in your life (or for yourself, we won’t judge!). Also available is a solid, complete copy of Journey Into Mystery #97, a classic 12 cent issue in which Thor faces off against the Lava Men. A new feature, “Tales of Asgard”, also makes its debut in this issue. A dynamic Jack Kirby cover seals the deal. Don’t hesitate to add this to your collection today!
These 10-day auctions run from October 24th to November 3rd:
