FX announced yesterday that they ordered a Pilot episode for a comic book project they were working on; Legion, and announced they were also developing a project related to the Helfire Club. This is great news for speculators as Legion is a characters whose first appearance regularly appears in dollar and three dollar bins – under $10 bins in high grade. Legion (David Haller) is the son of Charles Xavier – first appearing briefly in New Mutants #25 with a full origin in New Mutants #26. New Mutants #26 is the book to be looking for however New Mutants #25 is also a winner.
Both of these books regularly sold for under $4 on ebay but since yesterday have been peaking up to $30 (for Near Mint New Mutants #25). These two books are ones to look for.
There is also word out that the Hellfire Club is being developed by the same studio has a projected television series. It is unclear what incarnation will be used but X-Men #129 is a sure beat at this point.
Another book to be looking for at your local comic book stores that came out this week is Black Mask’s Clandestino #1 – already selling for double cover in the $8 to $10 range – this could be another big Black Mask title and not one to sleep on.
