115 dollars for the Master of Kung Fu TPb of the 2003 6 issue series. That's a lot.
Low print run ?
...wait, you're serious? I'd sell the six individual issues and all I would want is to get my original investment back.

going for $3 and change on Lonestar, no sign of Stan Lee. Lee's not on any Fanfare cover I know of. Al Milgrom (Fanfare's editor) is on #45...
with a pretty stellar line up of artists...
All pin-up issue: the Fantastic Four (by Arthur Adams), Captain America (Michael Golden), Silver Surfer & Galactus (Jim Lee), Doctor Strange (Kevin Nowlan), Storm of the X-Men (Barry Windsor-Smith), Ka-Zar (Brent Anderson), Loki & Thor Hela (Bret Blevins), Volstagg (Jon Bogdanove/Al Milgrom), the Hulk (Norm Breyfogle), (John Buscema/Brett Breeding), Wolverine (Howard Chaykin), Thor and Captain America and Reed & Sue Richards of the Fantastic Four (Butch (Jackson) Guice), Spider-Man (Klaus Janson), Shadowcat (Michael Kaluta), Iron Man (Bob Layton), Clea (Steve Leialoha), Colossus (Rick Leonardi/Dan Green), the Sub-Mariner (Mike Mignola), the Scarlet Witch (Sandy Plunkett), Dracula (Bill Reinhold), the original X-Men (Marshall Rogers), Daredevil (John Romita Jr./Al Williamson), the Black Panther & Klaw (Steve Rude), Killraven (Craig Russell), the New Mutants (Terry Shoemaker), Magik (Bill Sienkiewicz), Thor (Walt Simonson), the Green Goblin (Paul Smith), Iron Man (Ken Steacy), Black Bolt & Medusa (Charles Vess), the Rawhide Kid (Alan Weiss), and the Punisher (Mike Zeck). Wraparound cover by John Byrne featuring just about every major Marvel hero.
it's an all pin up issue going for about $8 in high grade on Lonestar. Not sure if that is the one you were thinking of.

Couple of books getting a bump, purely because of movie news.
Giant Size Fantastic Four #4 is seeing prices of $30-50 depending on condition thanks to Fox movie news. Also ASM #101 is expensive because they are apparently looking at doing a Morbius film. This one has always seemed to have some value due to it being a first appearance (and beauty cover IMO) but now it is even more.
None of you seem to understand...I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with ME!

I was surprised to see issues of Web of Spider-Man #97 going for between $10-20 or more. Apparently it is the first appearance of the character that plays Nightwatch. I had a copy of Nightwatch #1 but man it was just so terrible, I traded it away a few months ago. I can appreicate Spawn for what it is and Nightwatch just seemed like such a rip-off.

I didn't want to start a thread so I resurrected this one. last week I went to my LCS for the first time in 2 months and picked up around 20 books. When he handed me my Avengers books, he mentioned that this book-
was going for 40 bucks , as it was the first appearance of Conan in the Marvel Universe.
( these youngin's don't seem to remember the 2 What If's? with him crossing over in the MU published in the 70'-80's)

You know, in re-reading the original post, I don't see any indication that the shock one derives from the asking price of a comic has to be due to the seller asking far too much for it. With that in mind, I didn't exactly laugh, but did let out a 'Huh!' when I purchased a copy of Panic #9 for five dollars (and that's here in Canada) at a convention last month. It's not in great shape but is complete, has a classic cover, and certainly I'm not likely to find again in a 'This box - $5!' bin. I did ask the seller if he were sure the comic was supposed to be in that box and he assured me it was.
In checking out online how much the same comic goes for in a similar 'Good' grade, I've found places offering it for about $30 plus shipping - a price as low in my mind as say, $115 for a Master of Kung Fu tpb is exorbitant.
