“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 9/25/20

I mentioned the whole Jim Steranko X-Men logo thing last week, so I figured that I’d feature the first issue to actually have the redesigned logo this week.

X-Men number forty-nine and fifty are definitely companion pieces.

Can’t have one without the other.

X-Men #50, classic Jim Steranko cover and first X-Men issue to feature the redesigned logo, Fine Minus (5.5), $125.

Swamp Thing #1, first appearance of Alec Holland as Swamp Thing, Fine (6.0), $119.


Thor #169, origin of Galactus and first mention of the Creeping Plague a.k.a. The Black Winter, Fine Plus (6.5), $129.


Amazing Spider-Man #122, death of Green Goblin, Fine/Very Fine (7.0), $299.

I usually give the priciest book in the bunch top billing, but we’re switching things up this week.

It can be fun to subvert people’s expectations sometimes.

Take care not to over-subvert though!

People can get hurt when they over-subvert.
