Description

Major comic book investment alert! H&S is proud to present this exciting collection of original series X-Men comic books. One of the most important titles in the Marvel Universe, this significant Silver/Bronze age run promises great investment potential. Demonstrating a keen eye for selection quality, this important group boasts nicely matched covers showing abundant original details including handsome gloss, vivid colors, sturdy spines, supple pages and generally clean, flat surfaces. Inclusive of all issues from #2 through #66, this consecutive run presents in a highly collectible and fairly consistent grade range of (65% VG-FN to FN-VF, 35% GD-VG to VG). More on our website.

Launched in September, 1963, this mega-popular title ran all new stories in its first sixty-six issues through March of 1970, then beginning in December, 1970 with issue #67 Marvel began reprinting the tales, making the first sixty-six issues in essence the original run. Lacking only an example of the #1 inaugural issue to be considered a complete original run, this better grade near run of (65) ranks among the most coveted of its era. We would cite key issues as highlights, however for all intents and purposes this entire group can be considered keys. Starring a team of “Uncanny” teenagers endowed with incredible powers, this beloved franchise has translated to a series of blockbuster films that have packed movie houses with adoring fans that just can’t seem to get enough of these mutant super-heroes. With countless related merchandising efforts seemingly engulfing the collectibles world, this seminal series of comics is destined for a future as a blue chip investment.
