Comic Book University #1: Giant Size X-Men #1 | Investing In Comics
Hello comic fans and welcome to the first of many articles showcasing hot and rising comic books that we at Department Express Comic Book Speculation and News believe will be good investments in the future. Please remember this information is just for fun and is simply our opinion on what we think will be a good investment and is not a guarantee in anyway. As always please take this information with a grain of salt and make your own decisions when spending your hard earned money! Now that that's done, let's begin!
Now there are many "Hot Books" out at the moment, some modern, some old, some variants but we at Department Express want to only point the ones that in our opinion are sure fire, and will most likely not drop in value anytime soon. So that is why for our first pick we decided to do a big one: Giant Size X-Men #1 - The first appearance of Storm (Ororo Munroe), Colossus (Peter Rasputin), Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner), Thunderbird (John Proudstar) and a young Ilyana Rasputin who will soon become Magik, of the New Mutants movie fame.
Now it is not often a book will have multiple first appearances, let alone 5 first appearances of Huge starring heroes (Well okay John Proudstar does die heroically, but thankfully his brother Warpath carries on the legacy!). Storm, Nightcrawler and Colossus have been staples in comic books for decades, and Magik is sure to be very important to the future of the marvel universe.
When it comes to the big screen Storm and Nightcrawler are sure to breakout as mega heroes to the younger generation if they can find the right actors to play them, and Stefan Capicic is receiving great acclaim for his hilarious portrayal of Colossus in Deadpool and soon to appear in Deadpool 2. Also Anya Taylor-Joy will be playing the role of Ilyana Rasputin (Magik) in the upcoming New Mutants movie and we at Department Express believe her to be a future superstar as her performance in The Witch and Split were both just incredible!
Now when we take a look at the financial aspects of our investment tips, we can see that a CGC 9.4 Giant Size X-Men was sold in auction on September 24, 2017 for $1915 US Dollars. Now when comparing that to a Giant Size X-Men #1 CGC 9.4 sold in auction on October 22, 2017 the price was now $2350 US Dollars. That is a price based completely on supply and demand; equal auctions on the same platform with an identical product and the rise in price was $435 US Dollars. That is quite the gain on investment!
Well there you have it, these are the reasons We believe Giant Size X-men #1 will be a book to invest in for the future. Again please take our information as just for fun and make your own decisions when investing with your hard earned money!
Until next time, happy hunting!
