“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 5/11/19

Just Todd McFarlane books this week.

You gotta admire a fella with enough self confidence to refer to himself as “The Todd-Father.”

The guy talks Marvel’s most popular artists into leaving the company en masse to start their own company, spends millions on sports memorabilia, and walks around calling himself “Todd-Father.”

Gotta admire the chutzpah.


Incredible Hulk #340, Hulk versus Wolverine, CGC 9.6 (Near Mint Plus), $275.



New Mutants #87, first appearance of Cable, CGC Signature Series 9.2 (Near Mint Minus) signed Rod Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Bob Wiacek, and Louise Simonson, $350.



Spawn #175 and $175, first appearance of Gunslinger Spawn, Very Fine Plus (8.5) set, $200.




Spawn #216, rare due to low print run, Near Mint Minus (9.2), $75.



The most important lesson to be learned from Todd McFarlane’s rise to success in the comics and collectibles business is the importance of … you guessed it … CHUTZPAH!

You’ve gotta have the chutzpah, folks.

The more chutzpah the better but be careful; too much chutzpah can make one seem arrogant.

Remember that old adage, “There is always an overabundance of chutzpah before a fall.”
