A couple of weeks ago, Bleeding Cool pointed out how there appeared to be an earlier version of Wolverine published by Marvel in 1973, sent in as a competition entry to their Friends Of Ol’ Marvel magazine, from a young fellow called Andy Olsen. Six months later, Marvel had published a new character, Wolverine, in The Hulk #180 and #181.
The magazine would usually sell on eBay for around $5 or so, and mostly for the Jim Steranko cover.
It’s the biggest jump in the aftermarket of any comic since Peter Panzerfaust or Rachel Rising I think. Whether it holds will depend on how the market continues to view Olsen’s contribution.
