The X-Men have had such an amazing history ever since their creation and debut in 1963. The idea of a new evolutionary group of humans with special powers has since captivated fans. There are so many iconic comics from the series but one major comic and one that is on many fans wishlists is Giant-Sized X-Men #1 and ComicConnect has a 9.6 grade up for auction that is set to end on May 22nd. This special issue was published by Marvel Comics in 1975 and was written by Len Wein and illustrated by Dave Cockrum. This story opened up so many doors and turned the X-Men world into what it is now. It bridged the gap between the old X-Men team and the new one. This comic shows off some of the biggest mutants in the Marvel world and were all revealed under this one title. This comic sits as the 1st appearance of X-Men greats Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Thunderbird. The issue even brought the hugely popular Wolverine onto the team and we know how popular he gets, and it all started here. Storm, Colossus, and Nightcrawler are all huge members of the X-Men world now and who knows where our favorite mutants would be without them.
ComicConnect has this comic and so much more up for auction during Session 5 of Event Auction 42. There are 5 Giant Size X-amen being offered with Graded CGC 9.6being the highest. There is also 9.4, 9.0, 7.5, and 5.5 also available for fans who want something a little cheaper. As of right now, the current bid is at $4,200 with 21 bids. This is one collector's piece that will be any highlight of a dedicated X-Men fan series. From the introduction to Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler to the first team introduction of Wolverine this will be a piece that will grow in value over the years. You will be able to find the auction for the 9.6 Giant Size X-Men here which ends on May 22nd. If you're feeling even luckier take your chances with some of the other auctions ending throughout the day.
