This week I really want to discuss the importance of DC apes but before I do there are two other books I feel compelled to mention.
Marvel Super Special 40: First Labyrinth
The death of David Bowie has already sparked interest in the man’s best work. The comic series might see more love from buyers but those are just reprints. If you really want a challenge try finding this in anything above a 9.4.
Captain America 25 WWLA Variant
Interest in Cap keys is starting up again and this time the rumored death of Steve is a hot topic. When this title first came out it made national headlines ( something hard to do for comic deaths these days ) and the first printing generated buzz at market. I would say it’s a good bet Steve dies so this issue is fair to speculate on. The problem-a decent print run. If you really want to take a run at flipping death try the WWLA variant with one hell of a cover.
Note: Other issues besides Captain America Volume 5 issue 6/6b I would bet on are:
- Captain America Sentinel of Liberty 8, first Sam Wilson as Captain America
- Captain America Volume 5 issue 34 ( DF Ross Variant only ): Bucky becomes Cap.
Flash 106: First appearance of Gorilla City
Though this is the first appearance of Gorilla Grodd and is already on the radars of many buyers it is also the first appearance of Gorilla City which has recently appeared in the Flash. Thanks to news from creators of the show it is likely that Gorilla CIty will play a major role in the future. This is important because we can now speculate on other residents of the city and hope that they appear.
Note: This issue is also the first appearance of Solovar
