Why Strange Tales #89 is NOT a Hot Comic

2018 MARKET UPDATE: DROPPED OUT OF THE 100 HOT COMICS LIST

If you listened to our advice and held this book last year, then you did okay, especially at higher grades.

But it's time to let this book leave the list -- at least for now. Signs of it turning the corner are evident... Here are recent sales.

  • CGC 8.5 $9,500
  • CGC 4.5 $750
  • CGC 4.0 $700
  • CGC 2.5 $465

Atlas Comics -- pre-superhero Marvel, in other words -- were awesome. They featured tons of monsters, imagined by Stan Lee and drawn by Steve Ditko. Fin Fang Foom is just one of many.

Why, then, is this monster setting the comic book world on fire? Well, he's appeared as an antagonist in the Guardians of the Galaxy animated TV series.

Hints (a baby FFF in an egg in the 2008 Iron Man movie) are that he might show up in the movie sequel are enough to drive demand.

It's a very scarce book in any grade. A fine is about the most you can reasonably expect to afford.
