My First CGC Comic!

Wolverine #66: Old Man Logan - Dynamic Forces Variant

I have been wanting to check out some CGC comics for a while now.  I really want a #165 9.8 (or better) copy.  But in my travels I really didn’t find anything worth picking up – either the grade was too low, the book wasn’t one of my favorites or people were asking too much for a nothing issue.  Well, I went into Salem, MA the other day and walked into Harrison’s Comics and saw this – a 9.8 graded copy of Wolverine #66 – the start of Old Man Logan.  An issue I had yet to acquire – and this was a beautiful copy!

9.8 - NM/M Comic

I believe they were asking too much – and even tried to haggle them down a bit – but ultimately they didn’t budge and I still went for it.  I really struggled with whether or not to purchase – but in the end I did, mainly because this is a Herb Trimpe cover.  Seriously, that’s why I did it in the end.  I respect and admire Trimpe’s work that much I decided it was worth the money.
