Masters of the Universe comics blew up in the last year, and while the DC Comics output gets a bunch of the attention, I always enjoyed the Star Comics ones from Marvel over those. Not sure why, but they always felt more entertaining to me. It blew my mind when I read it as a kid that both Skeletor and Hordak could be in the same comic, and I must have read this about 400 times. Taking bids at Heritage Auctions today is a graded 9.8 copy of the book, a really gorgeous one. What's crazy is that it is already at $480 right now. Check it out below.
Masters Of The Universe Comics Are Better Than The Cartoons

393 copies in a 9.8 and still commanding that high a price? I am willing to bet that a lot of those submissions were in the last year or so.
