*Vintage Magazine-Sized Comics: In 1982, Marvel was expanding its line and experimenting with formats, and one such was the ongoing Marvel Graphic Novel series, squarebound paperback original stories in full-colour, with dimensions akin to their magazine line. The series saw many innovative stories and star creators (as well as a load of failed experiments), but one early hit in issue #4 was the New Mutants, Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod’s ‘X-Men In Training’, which span off into a long-running popular series. This story saw the debut of four characters – Sunspot, Cannonball, Wolfsbane and Moonstar (initially called Psyche, but that wore off) – who remain fixtures in the MU today, and brought on board Karma, who had debuted shortly before in Marvel Team-Up #100. This is a CGC graded 9.4 Blue Label (no restoration), an equivalent to NM. It is also a price variant, bearing an original dollar price of $5.95 as opposed to the standard $4.95. This copy is on sale for £200.
