Wolverine Wednesday #18

The Return Of Wolverine #2 Writer: Charles Soule | Artist: Declan Shalvey | Cover: Steve McNiven I have often criticised comics that ask more questions instead of giving answers as bad reads. However if there is a character that this story trope suits really well then it is Wolverine. It is especially effective in the […]

eBuying Comics: Week 6

by Ian Wells

Season 3 of Daredevil is earning rave reviews on Netflix from fans and critics alike at the moment and rightfully so. I most confess at this time and I wear it with a badge of honour but I first became interested in Daredevil after watching and enjoying the 2003 movie with Ben Affleck as the […]

eBuying Comics: Week 5

by Ian Wells

As this is my fifth post milestone I thought it would be a good time to do a glossary of words and phrases that I have already used and will be using more going forward when talking about buying and selling comics. The list of words and phrases will cover a variety of topics ranging […]

eBuying Comics: Week 4

by Ian Wells

I have been collecting comics for nearly twenty years now and I still can’t decide where I stand on ‘slab’ comics. A ‘slab’ comic is a comic that has been encased in thick plastic and given a numeric grade. The leading company in this field is Comics Guaranty (CGC). The numeric grading system introduced by […]

The Return of Wolverine #1 Writer: Charles Soule | Artist: Steve McNiven | Inks: Jay Leisten | Colourist: Laura Martin | Letters: Joe Sabino My initial response after reading this issue was that it was a very solid story. A decent enough return for a very big character. After re-reading it my overall feeling was […]

by Ian Wells

With Avengers: Infinity War now available on home entertainment world wide and its box office rampage finally coming to a halt I want to take a look at the variations in price for first appearance comics for some of the characters involved in the movie pre MCU and now. It goes without saying you superstar […]

eBuying Comics: Week 2

by Ian Wells

After my success at selling New Mutants #98 my Dad happened to mention  it to some people at work. However he forgot the finer details of how New Mutants #98 is highly sought after, how popular Deadpool is and how £107 is a relative bargain when you consider condition for such an in demand comic. […]

by Ian Wells

Welcome to a new weekly column where I will chronicle the ups and downs of being a comic collector using eBay to buy and sell. Things didn’t get off the greatest of starts. When I went to list my first item for sale I got an ‘Access Denied’ message! I want to start by talking […]

Old Man Logan #43-#44 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Juan Ferreyra | Letters: Cory Petit Can we just delay the return of Wolverine for a few more months maybe even a year? Or just give Ed Brisson writing duties when Wolverine does return. Another solid two issues that hopefully leads to a satisfying conclusion next […]

Wolverine Wednesday EXTRA: Marvel Legends 12″ Wolverine Review

by Ian Wells

This is my first ever toy review, but then again this isn’t a toy. It says on the box ‘Ages 4+’ no way at the price I paid for this I would give it to a four year old. It should be ’30+’. Then again at the height of X-Men the animated series’ popularity I […]

Wolverine Wednesday #9

by Ian Wells

Wolverine’s big return is in full flow with all roads leading to April. In February and March we are getting six more ‘post credits’ across a series of Marvel titles. I can’t believe there is a Wolverine collector out there who has been hardcore enough to pick up these issues for so little Wolverine content. […]

Wolverine Wednesday #8

Happy 2018 to everyone and I am predicting an exciting year for all things Wolverine related. All New Wolverine will continue to go from strength to strength under the pen of Tom Taylor and the name Honey Badger will be on everyone’s lips (if it isn’t already). I’m surprised and glad in equal measure that […]

After his appearance on Legacy #1 it has been confirmed that the original 616 continuity Wolverine will be back with us very soon. The road to his return starts in January 2018. He will appear […]

Weapon X #9-#10 Writers: Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente | Artist: Marc Borstel & Ibraim Roberson | Colourist: Frank D’Armata | Letters: Joe Caramagna When it started, the premise of a Wolverine/Hulk hybrid seemed like a fun idea considering the character’s shared history. It was the perfect way to launch a new series: double […]
