“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 1/10/20

So Marvel relaunched the New Mutants title again; this is of course a good thing, however I’m afraid that I’m going to have to take issue with the use of the term “new” in the title.

I hate to get hung up on a minor detail, but so far there are really only two members of the team who are the least bit “new” to the Marvel Universe (Maxime & Manon in case you were wondering).

If accuracy in advertising were the goal, the title would have to be something along the lines of “Mostly Formerly New Mutants”.

I suppose that’s a bit long for a title, but I really like the idea of a title that contains two adverbs.


Marvel Graphic Novel #4, first appearance of the New Mutants, Fine (6.0), $50.


New Mutants #98, first appearance of Deadpool, Near Mint Minus (9.2), $350.



New Mutants #1, Very Fine Plus (8.5), $20.



X-Force #1 Second Printing, signed by Rob Liefeld, Very Fine (8.0), $50.


Come on by the store and take a look at our old New Mutants back issues as well as the new Mostly Formerly New Mutants series, and make sure to check out the long-delayed New Mutants movie when it releases in April.

One could even argue that the New Mutants movie has been delayed for so long that it is actually an old New Mutants movie but then again, as the old saying goes, “Everything that’s old is new again.”
