Comic Book Movie and television adaptations are driving the speculative market. It sucks, but it is what it is.
Avengers #188 – Ant Man
Hank-Pym’s (Ant-Man’s) first appearance is in Tales to Astonish #27 – This book has always been a minor key but now with the new Paul Rudd staring Ant-Man film TTA #27 has received a nice bump in value. However, Paul Rudd isn’t playing Hank Pym in the new ant-man movie, he’s going to be Scott Lang. Its weird, its a movie, get over it. Avengers #188 has since gone for a worthless drek of stapled goods into a $30 – $100+ book. Its weird, but its happened.
Tales to Astonish #25 – Deathlok
The Shield TV show is still on the air. I’m surprised. A new character was announced, Deathlok. Deathlok has now doubled in value. Overstreet Value is $40 for a VF+ / NM – but VF+/NM sells for $80+ now – its weird.
