*Marvel: One very successful latter-day addition to the Web-Head’s Rogue’s Gallery was the Hobgoblin, who made his debut in 1983’s Amazing Spider-Man #238. The path of carnage and mysterious identity of this suspiciously familiar evil-doer kept readers entertained for more than a year before the Big Reveal, with several red herrings and false ‘revelations’ along the way. Our newest copy of ASM #238 is NM- p at £135, proudly retaining the Free Gift – Lakeside ‘Tattooz’ – which baffle and frustrate so many completists. Then, venturing tentatively into the world of modern comics, 2018’s Amazing Spider-Man #797 sports an ‘homage’ cover to #238, Mayhew Variant with the Red Goblin (your guess is probably better than mine) in the Hobgoblin role. This is a CGC Blue Label (unrestored) 9.8 (NM/M equivalent) at £150. So just to avoid any possible confusion; Spidey #238, NM- p NOT slabbed, £135, Spidey #797 9.8 CGC slabbed, £150.
