Ghost Of A Christmas Present Chance!


I'm not wrong for wanting this am I? This absolutely beautiful slipcase collection (check out the outstanding design here) is a veritable feast for any upstanding Marvelite. These are the original sacred gems which ignited the movement which now is the dominant comics force on the planet Earth. All that and Not Brand Echh too. And all I need is a cool five hundred smackers to snag one off Amazon. Sheesh!

Actually the sad truth is that the current Epic collections offer much more reading at a cheaper price point of comparable quality, but of course minus the NBE set and the beautiful box. But that's for readers, this set is for the statue collecting class, a noble breed I don't belong to.

  1. Looks great - I'll take a dozen of each. (Yeah, right.)

    1. I'm just waiting for the NBE edition to become available for reasonable money. I might be waiting a long while. I have all the old issues, but I'd love to have it a single volume.

  2. Wow!
    “Marvel Famous Firsts: 75th Anniversary Masterworks Slipcase Set”

    Has a 4.9 rating (among 8 commenter’s) so apparently the rich cats that bought this are really liking it.

    Yeah, Wonder exactly how many of these get sold overall…(A popular item for comic geeks in The %1, I guess…)

    1. We need more comics for the peasants. Fewer collectibles and more readables.

    2. It just crossed my mind that's what Essentials and Showcases were, comics for the poors. I loved them.
