*Marvel: 1982 is a bit ‘recent’ for our palates, as we tend to focus on all things Gold, Silver & Bronze in our backstock, but occasionally a newer comic catches the public interest, and this is one such exception. In Hulk #271, the Jade Giant hosted a guest-star who at the time was treated as a joke, but who has since become a major player following his starring role in the Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers movie franchises. Yes, Hulk #271 is the second appearance – and the first full-length, full-colour comic-book appearance – of Rocket Raccoon, and has skyrocketed in collectible and commercial importance over the last few years. This copy is an attractive FN+, pence priced, with very light corner and edge wear but tight staples, bright colour and clean interiors, and features all the quality you’d expect from the creative team of Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema. FN+ p £55.
