Weapon X Classic Issue Taking Bids At Heritage Auctions
Weapon X, initially published in Marvel Comics Presents issues #72-84 and by iconic artist Barry Windsor-Smith is arguably the best Logan story ever published. So many cool covers, such an essential story in the pantheon of Marvel Comics, and a story that they still pull from for cover homages and more to this day. The best cover is debatable, but issue #79 of Marvel Comics Presents may be the coolest. A really nice CGC 9.8 copy is taking bids at Heritage Auctions today, and I was kind of surprised when I saw that it was already sitting at $200 with a ton of bids. Check it out below.
