Spider-Man Meets The Debuting Tombstone, On Auction At Heritage

Spider-Man's various books are littered with keys and not just the big ones that everyone knows and expects either. No, there is some gold in them there hills, including Web of Spider-Man #36 from 1988, which features the debut of Tombstone, one of the most underrated Marvel villains in my eyes. The character has a lot of potential as far as the MCU is concerned, and he is also a lowkey fan favorite. That makes this CGC 9.8 copy, taking bids at Heritage Auctions today, that much more enticing. This is one of only 94 to reach that grade as well, so for a book with what was surely a high print run, that is fantastic numbers-wise. It currently sits at $148 as of this writing. Check it out below.
