Godzilla Stomps Into Comics With CGC Copy At Heritage Auctions

Godzilla is a property I had no real knowledge or interest in before I started working at a comic shop over a decade ago. In the years since, I can tell you that I have learned that the King Of The Monsters has one of the most dedicated and smart fanbases around. And folks, they will but anything and everything, no matter the size, price, or age. Comics are included in that, and the 70's Marvel Comics serious has had some serious heat on it for a while now. Hard to get in decent shape anymore, Heritage Auctions is taking bids on a CGC 9.6 copy of the first Marvel issue as we speak. It is, as of this writing, a steal at only $90. Check it out below.
