Blade, Shang-Chi, Krypto and More!
Here’s a little quickie to hold y’all over until next week when I take you on a romp through the Marvel Multiverse. As we inch closer to Doctor Strange 2 there’s going to be a lot of speculation. I’m gonna try to help you sort through it. I don’t like missing a week though so here are a few books I like this week.
Reprinting of Blade’s first appearance from Tomb of Dracula 10
Read my stuff and you know I am a big fan of foreign firsts. There are a few Tomb 10 reprints to dig out but this mag sized reprinting is stunning.
First foreign appearance of Shang-Chi
Here’s another foreign first that is currently affordable. That isn’t going to last.
First Hephaestus ( Phastos )
I do not believe anyone should be saying that Circi from ST is the first appearance of the Eternals Sersi. That book is a one panel appearance of a Greek God. The two characters are NOT the same or at least they were not until Kirby retconned that fact into Eternals 4. But if we are going to go by that then this is the the first appearance of Phastos. The point is we cannot have it both ways.
And ST 109 isn’t even the first Circe!
First naming of Atlantis at Marvel
Atlantis appeared in an earlier issue but it wasn’t named until this issue. There’s been a fair amount of speculative hype around Namor and the Black Panther so this might be one to look for even though it isn’t cheap.
First time Sonic and Hedgehog and the TMNT appear together
When I did my Superpets Special I mentioned this book and to be completely transparent I recently bought one copy of this because I am a Ross collector. This is easily the best Krypto cover ever. I’m sorry I rarely say that because everyone’s taste is different but it is.
I m a pretty big fan of this guy’s covers, this being one of my favorites
These Undersea Agents covers are pretty much the only Tower Comics I would buy.
