There are times that the whole “comic spec scene” gets a bad rap, but it really is a ton of fun/pretty rewarding when things pan out or something you read/remember/etc pans out.
For me particularly, all of this recent hype about Hulk #258 is great. I’ve honestly been buying up that book for as long as I can remember. It is just an amazing book and imo has been undervalued all along. It has never had any hype but is full of firsts. White cover, great read, Ursa Major fighting the Hulk! (and the interactions between them is really funny “Hulk smash funny talking Bear Man”, etc.
There are so many books out there like this…just waiting for “something” to make them hot. I frankly don’t really ever sell my comics. I tend to trade here and there…but there is just something satisfying in “knowing” you had the foresight to grab a book on the cheap when all the sudden it absolutely explodes.
Happy hunting all!!!
