Warning: These are the opinions of one man. I have been known to be wrong at times. If you strongly disagree, then let me know what you think. I can be swayed.
These are my underrated/overrated picks for May….
Star Wars 42 – You better buy this book now. I know it’s a lot of money but I can almost guarantee you will get a sick return on your investment soon. I guess Boba Fett never died. Hmm. That’s convenient. I’m guessing they may need him for the new Star Wars movie. If not, there are already discussions that he will have his own spin-off movie. As soon as that’s officially announced, get ready to make that Harley Quinn money!!!
Star Wars 68 – This is an awesome book but it is way overrated right now. That’s not Boba Fett on the cover. This is not his origin. It’s a pretty cool story and the dude in the picture is a bit of a badass. Other than that, this book has little to do with Boba Fett. My money is on #42 right now.
You better get yourself a Boba Fett action figure variant soon. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then you’ve been living under a rock. Preselling for $70? That’s ridiculous! Or is it?
Marvel Premiere 1 – This book is the official 1st appearance of Adam Warlock. Before this he was nameless and only recognized as HIM. I know some people hate on this guy. I don’t. Within a day of being born, he snatched up Thor’s girl and almost beat him in a fight. Thor. He did this on the day of his birth. That’s pretty badass. Anyhow, this book is cheaper than it should be. As high-grade copies of Thor 165 get out of reach, these remain available at very affordable prices. See for yourself!
Fantastic Four 67 – 1st appearance of a cocoon. This is a cool book because it’s old but this will never be a true key. Nobody cares about a cocoon. To be honest, I kind of don’t like cocoons.
Possible Movie Villains
Fantastic Four 47 – 1st appearance of Maximus the Mad. The masses are asleep on this book right now. Most Ebay listings don’t even have this book listed as his 1st appearance. Maximus is Black Bolt’s brother and he is hell-bent on conquering the Inhumans. I feel that Maximus makes the most sense as lead villain for the Inhumans movie since he is the lead protagonist. Buy the highest grade you can afford and don’t look back.
Avengers 55 – 1st appearance of Ultron. I strongly believe that Ultron is going to be a total badass in the new Avengers movie. Unfortunately, most villains have a relatively short half-life, regardless of awesomeness. As soon as he’s defeated, the masses move on to the next big thing. There’s only room in the Marvel Universe for one super-villain and his name is Thanos. Don’t get caught holding onto this one unless it’s for your PC.
You should probably buy Iron Man 55. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend that tax–return money. Thanos will be around for awhile.
