I bought those books of the shelf & my Brother has the variant.
Fantastic read, That TV show Once Upon a Time (never watched it) I think borrowed from that idea. Same as Harry Potter & (The Books of Magic).
When i had my 9 year hiatus Fables was the one book i regretted stopping.

Dell Lobo is very undervalued in the guide here. He is considered the "first" African American super-hero and the series si extremely hard to find in any condition.

The Lobo prices are pretty consistent.

I think the book is considered the 1st book that has an AA character headlining a comic book. Black Panther is still the first African superhero and the Falcon is the first African American superhero.

A book I think is pretty undervalued is Hell Rider #1. In it contains the 1st appearance of the Butterfly who is the first AA super-heroine.


I just picked up the 2 issues of Hell Rider. It is another book which will take off once people grasp the importance of it. I loved the wig the character had.

I cannot predict the future but books I think are under valued

World's finest 3 (first scarecrow),
Fantastic four 48
batman 181
Action comics 58 (probably one of the most historically interesting superman covers)
Wonder woman 178
Grenada 1984 (historically awesome, practically unknown)

Books that I think are high risk investments due to over speculation IMO,

New Mutants 98 --approx 275k printed and there are a lot of collectors sitting on this
\wonder woman 98 (series 1). Guide value is way low, but market prices are over the top
Fantastic four 45,52 (I just do not believe these are nearly as key as 48, but due to speculation they have been selling for as much if not more)

Grenada - this one?

Historically fascinating - unfortunately no significant collectable value.
There area large number of 1960's and 1970's war comics about famous WW2 battles - unfortunately collectors are not as interested in real, historical battles as they should be. Definitely a novelty. I'd buy it if I could get it cheap - just for the "unusual" effect.

I think that due to the new GOTO movie mentioning Adam at the end (sorry for the spoiler if you've still not seen it) and the expected use of him in Avengers films against Thanos I would expect Fantasic four #66 to rise as that's the first mention of him. And also Marvel premiere #1 it's his real appearance.

Amazing spiderman 135 and 136 have always been steady but with 129 costing so much and unattainable to many 135 is gonna be the next best option. 134 with shows the punisher in a few panels isn't doing much more than usual so #135 looks to be the way to go. Punisher series has already been announced on Netflix. ASM #136 is always a good option to with Marvel studios now having Spiderman back I'm guessing a Green Goblin story will be on.the cards.it makes sense to appeal to the younger age bracket to utilise the Harry Osborne version who first appeared in 136.

X men 266 is.still.doing well with the first appearance of Gambit but the movie has been delayed. I'd buy it now if you want to flip.it. same.with moon knight buy now to flip.
Daredevils Frank miller era continues to go.from strength to strength.
Just my 2 cents

Fantastic Four #66 & 67 are well known and overrated. Warlock does not actually appear in his golden skin form in either.

The lesser known books to have are Thor #165 & 166 with #165 being an extremely wise purchase in high grade since it has a black cover and would be extremely hard to find in high grade.

Still think that 98 is mistakenly labelled as over-valued. Damn hard book to find especially is VG or better. It also marks the first creative team change in well over a decade. I cannot stress enough just how hard it can be to find many issues of WW below 112, especially in high grade. Even with prices going up quite a bit in the last number of years WW v.1 is still a pretty cheap series to purchase.

I'm still disappointed in a friend who bought a huge Golden Age to resell and he didn't keep the Sensation #1 for himself. He passed it along in the deal. Why!!!
