The last time I checked this beautiful copy of 181, graded at 9.8 is at $11,100! $11,100 is a lot of scratch! That’s an amazing piece of history – and it’s not even finished yet! As I was talking to Herb Trimpe in Boston this past Saturday he told me that in the past 3 to 4 months he has had more requests to draw Wolverine than any other character. More than Hulk! More then Godzilla! That makes me a bit sad… I mean, let’s look at the facts here – Herb drew Wolverine’s first appearance – but he did not create that character – he didn’t even design him! He said it himself – someone asked him if he was upset that they never credit him with the creation of the character – he said “No – it doesn’t bother me! I mean, I just drew him. They showed me what to draw and I did it.” It’s not a character that Herb basically DEFINED for an entire generation! Yet- this is what people want to see from him as of late… oh well such is life.
The best thing about this book – it’s not even about Wolverine. It’s about the Wendigo! And I know too many people who own this book who have never even bothered to read the story! What is up with that? You pay enough for a copy of a book – you should know the story front to back! Just my opinion – but I can’t imagine it being way off base!
