*Marvel: A one week only return of our Slab Happy event from this past summer! Our latest themed event is centred on the recent acquisition of an Avengers collection of exceptional grade, and which we have dubbed “Avengers’ Very Finest” since almost all issues are Very Fine or better grade. This cents-copy collection features many key issues, which we’re working through at present. Our inaugural offering is of the only two slabbed issues from this collection: #16, in which the Old Order Changeth’ed for the first time, as Iron Man, Thor, Giant-Man and the Wasp took a sabbatical and were controversially replaced by three reformed villains – Hawkeye, Quicksilver, and the Scarlet Witch, for one of the series’ most acclaimed periods; CGC 8.5 (VF+) at £285. The other slabbed issue – both being CGC blue-label copies, indicating no restoration – is issue #18, CGC 8.0 (VF) at £60, featuring the menace of the Commissar – whose long-overdue return is, we’re sure, coming any day now. Look for many more “Avengers’ Very Finest” updates in the weeks to come!
