Speculator Corner: Marvel Comics #1000 – First Appearance of Apocalypse’s Original Four Horsemen From HOXPOX

Marvel Comics #1000 was a big-selling title for Marvel – but not their biggest. The ten-dollar price tag saw to that. Still, there are lots of copies around and about. The D23 Mickey Mouse cover sells comfortably for $200 a pop, and some of the rarer covers get a slight premium, but the standard covers sell for, or below, cover price.

Now there are a few moments that may suggest it could be in collector and speculator demands. The setting up of The Masked Raider, the revived Enclave and new 3Xs, the return of Korvac and Adam Strange, all big enough moments to draw the Speculator Eye of Sauron.

But the first time we saw them, and saw their faces too, was in Marvel Comics #1000. And that’s going to count as a first appearance. First cameo at least. If you were interested in such things. Should be plenty of copies around (for now) if you are…

And, as part of Excalibur, will that see him bring back his original horsemen? They presumably have a part to play…
