The other day, Bleeding Cool reported on Mile High Comics in Denver having fourteen valuable comic books stolen from a smashed case in their Jason Street store, including a New Mutants #98 by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld, published by Marvel Comics, the first appearance of Deadpool and Domino, Mile High valued their copy at $960, with the whole haul at $42,000.
Well A-1 Comics just reported the theft of the same comic from their store in Folsom, California, last night with a picture of the suspect. Anyone you recognise?
ATTENTION A-1 Comics Family:
Last night this man stole a high-grade New Mutants #98 from our Folsom location. Please notify the Folsom PD if you see him and let us know at Lanvin@A-1Comics.com
Keep a safe hands on your copies… the comic published in its hundreds of thousands by Marvel in 1991 became a collectible for its first appearances, which only ramped up with the release of the Deadpool movie. One of the copies that Rob Liefeld charges a lot to sign, as copies have sold for four figures, he recently revisited the events in this comic for his new Major X comic from Marvel.
