This Collectibles Shop page has all my remaining back issue Marvel comics for sale, well below guide prices, from Avengers to Spider-Man to X-Men and many in between. A few Silver and Bronze Age comic books left, but mostly Copper/Modern, including some graphic novels. Most are high grade. Some moderns are half cover price or less. I usually give good text descriptions before a sale, so don't be turned off by a scan or lack of one, just ask for a better description, or bigger scan. All are Near Mint, first prints, complete, unless noted. No restoration, pressing, etc. as far as I know. More comics on the Clearance page, from .25¢ to $1! See my What's New page for site-wide sales announcements and price reductions. See my Feedbacks page for testimonials. See this page on my site for Overstreet Grading Definitions.

Spider-Man (it's not 'Spiderman') titles:

Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 1, 1976 series:

Run/lot from #99-263 when it ended in 1998. Missing #'s 131, 132, 176, 184, 185. Includes Spectacular Scarlet Spider #1, 2. So 162 issues total, all first prints. Most of the first 25 issues or so were bought off the newsstand or by mail subscription from Marvel, so they range from a VG subscription-fold one, a few Fines, to most being VF- to VF/NM. Most copies above #126 are direct market ones, and most are NM/NM-, with about 10 in VF to VF/NM, 1 VG, and a couple Fine to F/VF. Some will have a slight "valley" along the spine or open edge, from not being lined up perfectly straight in the boxes/filing cabinets, which is a common thing. A batch from #158-188 have wavy page margins (Edge view, inside view), very common around late '80s to 1992/3 or so, many of my titles had that, and I'm not downgrading for that. Some are 2 to a bag, most are bulk bagged in mag bags, and only a few have backing boards. If there was a choice, I bought the deluxe issue, so there's a number of $2.95-$3.95 fancy covers. #213 includes the animation "cel" print. My price is under $1 per issue, vs. the $2.50-$3.99 cover price for new comics, so get this for you or the kids to enjoy. #131 and #132 are pulled to be CGC graded in May/June, so reduced the price another $10, now just...$150 (View lot)

#2, overall VF+ 8.5 at least. Kraven and the Tarantula appearances. Has one medium size, but not heavy spine kink at mid-spine (light valley to it, minor stress mark); has some dull areas in the gloss here and there (mostly across 'The Spectacular' title, some in 'OMEN' and black areas below that, and crowd guy's brown hair), likely from another comic sticking slightly when they were new, but no color peels or flakes...$12 (View)

#28 NM- 9.2. Pt. 2 of the Daredevil crossover, Frank Miller art. Has about 4 very small spine kinks/stress marks, all very very short...$12 (View)

Web of Spider-Man Vol. 1, 1985 series:

#1-129 run, doesn't include #31, 32, 104, 118. Includes Web of Scarlet Spider #1-4, New Warriors #67, Annuals #1, 2, 4, and 8 (may be willing to sell annuals separately, ask). 134 issues total, all are 1st prints. Here's the general info on this run: This run is for READING, not for investment, as it's not an all NM run, besides being the least popular of the 3 old Spidey titles. #1, while NM, has a bad cut and staple job from the factory, with some pages having the art trimmed off a little on the open edge, and it was folded/stapled with about a 1/2" over-wrap, so about 1/2 the back pages are 'short' of the front half (View front & back). #2-26 were mostly purchased off the newsstand by me, before I was a "collector", and they range from several VG's and VG/F's, to mostly F/VF to VF+, so no great shakes there. MOST books above #34 are NM/NM- direct market copies, with a few VF+, a couple Fines, and a couple newsstand issues. Some will have a slight "valley" along the spine or open edge, from not being lined up perfectly straight in the boxes/filing cabinets, which is a common thing. A batch from around #41-88 will have wavy page margins top and bottom, also common for a time, and I'm not downgrading for that. (Edge view, inside view). Some are 2 to a bag, some are bulk bagged in mag bags, and only a few have backing boards. Several issues have $2.95-$3.95 cover prices. #90 has the neat big hologram cover, #113 comes with the cel print, #125 has a neat Holodisc on the cover. If there was a choice, I bought the deluxe cover. New comics are $2.50-$3.99 now, so these back issues are a bargain at what I'm asking, which comes to about $.67¢ per book! #31 and #32 are pulled to be CGC graded in May/June, so reduced the price another $10, now just...$90 (View lot)

Marvel Mini-books:

These miniature comics are from 1966, and only 5/8"x7/8" (view next to a penny), and are known as the world's smallest comics. (Listed in Overstreet in the Promotional comics section under Marvel Mini-books.) Neat pieces of Marvel memorabilia. They were distributed in gumball machines, and they made 6 titles in 6 colors: Captain America, Incredible Hulk, Millie the Model, Sgt. Nick Fury, Spider-Man, and Thor, in red, orange, blue, green, light green/lime, and yellow covers. About 50 pages, black & white, usually with an illustration on one page and text on the facing page (view a Hulk page). Some have stories (usually reprinted material from what I've read), and some are joke books. Insides are all the same per title, only the cover colors change. They have a glued binding, and many other's copies have dried out and are very fragile, but mine are all in good shape, but I'd be very wary about trying to read them anyway. Mine were not out of gumball machines, they were unused overstock, and most are in very nice shape, but quality varies, especially with the back covers. The pics are several times larger than the actual books, so the defects will look way bigger too, but in person most of the defects are tiny. Colors in the pics will vary between titles, but in person they're all about the same. The red ones tend to be more intense in scans or camera pics, and the yellow ones not so much. I can email larger/sharper pics of fronts and backs too.

They supposedly made millions of them, and they're not as rare now as once believed, so don't believe that 'rare' hype you'll see elsewhere. Most all of mine have some edge flaking, this is very common. These are all I have left now:

Marvel Premiere, "Featuring the Power of Warlock", 1972:
#2 VF 8.0, off-white/light cream color cover, nice off-white pages. Gil Kane art. Warlock story continues from #1, appearances by the High Evolutionary, Man-Beast, and Rhodan, and a "The Yellow Claw" reprint. This issue is where he's first called ADAM Warlock. Has 4 shallow valley spine kinks, extend 3/8" to 1/4" in, plus a few other little stress marks on spine; tiny pinhole w/flap that covers it, between 'The' and Power' in title. Heating up due to Warlock owning an Infinity Gem and his no doubt future movie appearances dealing with Thanos and the Infinity Gems Gauntlet...$18 (View)

#2 F/VF- 7.0, off-white/light tan/cream color cover about a shade darker than the above one, off-white pages. About a dozen or so spine stresses, couple with light valley to them, one heavier one at mid-spine; tiny bit of a tear at bottom staple hole; very light 5/8" lower right corner bend, not creased, barely shows when glinted; shorter but even more faint bend on back corner; tiny bit of edge bend-over there with tiny edge tear...$14 (View)

Marvel Presents, 1975 series, .25¢−.30¢ covers. All are Guardians of the Galaxy appearances (try to remain calm). Most have off-white to whitish pages. NOT the 'new' Guardians, these are the original team:
#4 VF 8.0. Bottom left corner bump, with 1/4" crease, and 3/16th crease inside of it; few very small spine kinks; 2mm upper right corner tip crease...$4 (View)

#9 VF 8.0. Origin of Starhawk pt. 1. Five or so 2mm spine stress marks; 1.125" stress line on right bottom edge; mild corner color rub there too; little 3/16" thumbed spot middle of open edge w/TINY tear...$4 (View)

Marvel Super-Heroes Vol. 1, 1968 run:

#15 VF 8.0, white pages. All new Medusa (of the Inhumans, TV show coming!) story, by Archie Goodwin, art by Gene Colan, plus reprints. Medusa vs. the Trapster, Sandman and the Wizard. Nice copy, and it has the "normal" printing spots all over the cover from them stacking them before ink was dry, which most of this issue's print run had. They show some in the scan as the pinkish spots in the title, but show more in person. Main defect is a vertical 1.5" upward bend ridge near right edge, about 3" up from the bottom. No color break, and doesn't show in the scan, but noticeable in person; minor little kink spot at bottom left edge in Medusa's foot; top right corner has faint 1/2" mostly vertical bend to it, hardly noticeable; 3-4 worthless short stress marks on spine in the white border, they show more on the flat edge; decently square spine, and cover is otherwise smooth, edges are clean; back cover has some usual transfer "dirt", not bad...$18 (View)

#16 VF+ 8.5, nice off-white/white pages. First Silver Age appearance (?) of the Phantom Eagle (Who? Some WWI fighter plane guy.) All new story, plus Golden Age reprints with Sub-Mariner, Captain America etc.. Has a "JUN 25 1968" date stamp above his cape; bottom right corner has several short creases in tip, 3/16" and less, plus a thin 1/4" vertical stress line to the left, and hint of a corner bend/ding when glinted; a few of those common printing dot spots along bottom edge; nice spine, with only 1 very slight kink/indent; back cover has super light 1/2" corner crease/wrinkle lower left, only seen when glinted...$13 (View)

#19 F/VF- 7.0 or so, off-white pages, with a couple "buts". All new Kazar story, George Tuska art, plus Golden Age reprints. Nice overall, but has a blue pen streak near top edge just off the Marvel box. It's about 7/8" total, but only 1/2" really shows, rest trails off; down the spine edge about 1/4", there's a 1/4" split, don't know how that happens. Above the split there's no tear, but cover isn't glued to pages there. Split doesn't show unless you open it and look inside, otherwise all you see is a fuzzy line. Lower right corner has 1/4" and 1/16" creases; top right corner has faint 3/16" bend from tip ding, also on back corner, ding shows on most page tips; 3/8" thumbed stress line midpoint bottom edge; little chip/tick off bottom spine edge. Clean, nice color. Priced below guide Fine...$10 (View)

#20 VF- 7.5 or so, off-white pages. All new Dr. Doom solo story, from 1969, which should make this far more collectible than the guide shows (how can it be worth less than #15 & #16?). Doom vs. Diablo (Master of Alchemy, and really cliché villain phrases). Plus more Golden Age reprints. Top right corner has most of a 1/2" stress line, and inside of that is a 3/16" crease, but it's all flat there; some minor abrasions down the open edge, with a 1"+ thumbed stress line nearer bottom, in Doom's Cape along edge; bottom right corner has 3/16" crease, and fuzzing at tip; bottom edge has 7 or so yellowish printing scuff dots; white scuff dot at bottom staple bump, and some abrasion rub along top edge below that spot; top staple pokes through tiny hole at C in "Marvel Comics Group"; nice spine otherwise, no kinks/stresses to mention; light dirt in white letters of title; has very fine/light shelfwear or shipping rub scratches all over, not sure how that's done the way it is on this copy, but no heavy ones or color breaking scratches...$18 (View)

Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D./SHIELD, 1968 series:
#3 VG/F 5.0, off-white pages. Steranko cover & story. Looks better than grade, main defect is a 1" corner crease upper right; about 7 very thin 2-4mm spine stresses, hardly detract; fuzz at bottom spine corner; 1/16" tip crease bottom right; and found 2 water/moisture spots on cover—one 3/16"L x 1/8"H in R in Fury, shows as dull spot, but inside there's a stain spot; other lighter dull spot in E in SHIELD title, about 1/2"L x 3/16"H, has scattered little dull spots spreading off of it; a few little ones in Marvel box above Fury. You don't see the spots unless glinted or you're told where they are. And a water stain that shows on inside front cover on bottom edge near spine—two spots, bigger one is 3/4" wide, about 3/8" high at highest point, and a 1/4" one above it. Doesn't show on front due to green grass color, and is not all fuzzy or browned like bad stains, but has discoloration. Only affects the inside cover, not interior pages. Otherwise nice glossy cover, nice edges. Back cover is clean and nice...$12 (View 580px wide, 157kb) (View 900px wide, 332kb) (View back)

#6 VF- 7.5, off-white/white pages. Steranko cover. Five or six 3-4mm very thin spine stress lines, not kinked. 2 odd other wrinkle/stress lines are what cut down the grade: One curls down from top edge above Fury title to D in S.H.I.E.L.D., so about 2.5" long, but very thin, only the 1" part above Fury shows super thin white crack line, rest trails off, but you can see the slight indent/bend to it when glinted; other one runs vertical near spine edge, about 3.5" long, very thin; top right corner has some thin/very light stress lines too, no bends; Marvel box has a super light/thin vertical print crease running through Fury, can see it better on inside, almost invisible on outside; couple very minor thumbed edge stresses along top, barely noticeable; bottom spine corner has little impact ding and light 1/8" stress/crease. About 5 middle pages have 2-3" printing creases across top right corner, and last couple pages have a couple 3"+ dips/bends from printer too.

#7 Fine- 5.5, off-white pages. Steranko cover. Top right corner has thin 1" corner crease, light bend to it, and it goes through the book, with 3/4" crease on back cover corner; stress fractures along top edge overhang; 5 or so spine kinks, most very mild, one at bottom is worst, with thin dip extending about 1/2" in; couple 3/16" stress marks too, 3-4 other short ones, most hide well in the art. Back cover shows some very light indent lines near bottom spine corner, 1/4 to 1/2"; two dull spots in ad that look like thumb prints when glinted, can't see otherwise...$13 (View 580 px wide, 155kb) (View 900px wide, 333kb) (View back)

#10 VF 8.0, off-white/white pages. Christmas story, hence the cover art. Very nice at first glance, little niggling things keep it from VF+.

#13 Fine 6.0, off-white/white pages. Versus the Super Patriot. Mostly it's spine kinks/stresses, plus a 1/2"w x 3/4"h very light moisture stain in top of flag stripes, not solid, no waviness or fuzz, easy to overlook. Has about a dozen various stress marks, half are 1/8", others are shorter and hard to see in the yellow part, but have mild kinks to them too, a couple valleys extend 1/4" to 1/2" into cover, but shallow. 1/4" dip/kink at .12 price is heaviest one. Top right corner has very light writing imprint of price, covers about 3/4"x3/4" above and into Comics Code box, shows when glinted. 1.5" thin horizontal printing wrinkle at Super Patriot's right foot, another lighter 1" vertical one in gun shadow on flag; little abrasion at bottom spine corner and some along bottom edge; few light reading kinks bottom area.

#15 VF- 7.5, off-white/white pages. First appearance of AN assassin named "Bulls-Eye," but NOT the same one from Daredevil later (Bullseye), this was this guy's first and last appearance, but still high priced in guides. Little fuzzy/rub at top spine tip with the little tick piece there; in Marvel box, there's two little white rub dots right next to black edge across from Fury's shoulder, 3-4 really thin 3mm stress lines/wrinkles, another at top staple; at bottom of top staple, you can see one of those "<" shaped kinks going out 1/2" from it when you glint it, but very very light and shallow, and bottom staple hole has 1/16" tear, melds well so hard to see. Rest of spine is nice, but has very shallow valley the length of it, nothing I count off for though; bottom edge has very slight abrasion along most of it, worst part is near spine where it has the most minor of curl/mush to it, about 3/4" long; open edge has about a 2" section near bottom of white edge abrasions, but broken up. Back: upper left corner area of back cover got bent a little long ago, leaving a couple/3 very light wrinkle lines. Worst one is about an inch down, across corner, maybe 2.5", oh so slightly raised, only about 1.25" of it is noticeable. Inside cover, the ad shows white stress in the black part of that wrinkle. Other wrinkle lines are above it, longest is 3.5" if you count the last part as the same line, which it may not be; another very faint one above that is about 1" long. Can e-mail large scan of back. Pic of back corner has been darkened a bit to show the bends better...$32 (View 580px wide, 171kb) (View 900px wide, 366kb) (View back) (View close-up of top corner)

Pro Action magazine #1, 1994. A collaborative effort from Marvel Comics and NFL Properties, "Where Pro football, comics, and pop culture collide," this 48 page mag has features on NFL stuff, and Marvel stuff. Has Troy Aikman cover and article, with Wolverine slashing "through" it. The 2 neat features it has are an original Uncanny X-Men comic book bound in, with a Wolverine cover. 16 page story featuring Callisto and the Morlocks, ("My Enemy, My Friend," by Ralph Macchio and Chris Marrinin), and two 4-card sheets of high quality trading cards: One sheet has Cyclops, Storm, Gambit, and Wolverine, other sheet has NFL Quarterbacks Randall Cunningham (Eagles), Steve Young (49ers), Phil Simms (Giants), and Warren Moon (Oilers). Also articles on rookie 49ers player Todd Kelley, interview with coach Dave Shula (Don Shula's son), Junior Seau's workout routine, and more. I have several, in NM-, VF/NM, VF, VF- and one in VG+, due to it's back cover getting several creases, and some spine wear on the front, but insides are ok. The defects on the others are just a few spine kinks of various sizes. $2.95 cover. This should be a lot more valuable by now, due to the original comic and exclusive cards, and I didn't find very many for sale now on the net, but seems there's not a lot of demand for it still:
