A random blog for random pictures!
I don't know if I ever mentioned this before, but X-Men #1 was one of the first comics I got as well (I don't remember if it was THE first, as I got several Spider-Man comics around the same time). I can still remember my mom giving it to me when she came home from the store one day, and I read it so many times that I could probably quote half the issue even today.Also, I have a framed print of that Psylocke-kicking-Magneto panel. :)
Cool, I didn't know that! I'll always remember seeing X-Men #1 at the corner grocery store, and mistaking it for Uncanny X-Men #1, which according to the Marvel Trading Cards I was collecting was worth WAY more then the $1.50 it was selling for! I was such a stupid kid that I actually thought the store was accidentally selling a $10,000 comic(at the time)for only $1.50! On the plus side, that bout of stupidity began my still growing comic collection, so that was one time my stupidity worked for me!Now that sounds pretty awesome! I definitely wouldn't mind having that!
Haha, that's hilarious...in part because I thought it was the first issue of Uncanny when my mom gave it to me as well! I realized my mistake when I opened it, of course, but it didn't affect my enjoyment in the slightest.
No kidding? Hmm, I wonder how many other kids were tricked in the same manner? Very sneaky Marvel, very sneaky indeed!
Well then again, I was tricked by quite a few things in comics as a kid. In general, I thought anything with a #1 on the cover would automatically be valuable someday (boy did Liefeld's X-Force and McFarlane's Spider-Man prove me wrong!). And when I read Spectacular Spider-Man #226, I thought Peter Parker was actually quitting and would never be Spider-Man again. Looking back, all of that seems pretty funny.
"In general, I thought anything with a #1 on the cover would automatically be valuable someday" Yeah, I also brought into that logic as well... Unfortunately, so did the comic book speculators during the early 90's, and we all know how well that turned out for the comic book industry!Everything always seemed so much more permanent back when you're a kid. I remember being shocked when Doom "killed" Mr. Fantastic back in the FF books in the 90's. Of course now, when a big name CB character dies, the cynic inside of me immediately asks, "So, how long before he/she comes back?"
You might wanna add "and what contrived 'they weren't actually dead' method will they use?" to the end of that ;)
You know what Nagash? You're ABSOLUTELY right, so I will!Of course now, when a big name CB character dies, the cynic inside of me immediately asks, "So, how long before he/she comes back and what contrived 'they weren't actually dead' method will they use?" Yeah, that's much better! :D
