THANOS IS AN ATM

Here’s where hype goes: An unremarkable first appearance comic (in this case The Invincible Iron Man issue 55) that can have its price jacked up to coincide with a hit movie (Thanos is in the credit tag at the end of Avengers… in case you’re one of the three human beings on the planet who haven’t seen it yet).

Am I angry? No. The boom is short-lived but can be good for comics overall because at least people are buying comics, even if it’s for silly reasons. And there are far worse first appearances you could be spending money on. Also, I love this seller’s approach. He includes a weirdly personal note in the sale that includes information no one really needs. He starts with “Hey guys” which I think is very un-Thanos of him.
