*Marvel: For the budget-conscious mutant aficionado, the chance to acquire the first appearances of recent key characters in affordable prices! Behind a cover by Rob Liefeld AND Todd McFarlane (Mr. Ambassador, you are spoiling us…), New Mutants #87 brought us the first full appearance of Cable, the time-travelling master of nobody’s-quite-sure-what-his-powers-are, who took over as the New Mutant’s mentor, spent a great deal of time traversing the aeons with sundry mutant babies, and is soon to co-star in the Deadpool 2 movie! Issue #98 of the same series brought us, in addition to the oft-overlooked debuts of Domino and the Gideon, the very first appearance of Deadpool, the Merc-With-A-Mouth who took comics – and, later, the cinematic world – by storm. Although very different from his later characterisation, this is nevertheless the very first Deadpool, and highly sought after. Both of these issues are graded as GD/VG, with the predominant drawbacks being multiple fine cover creases and pressure marks from long-term storage; the interior pages are fine. The #87 is a pence copy offered at £30; the #98 is a cents copy, on sale for £50.
