Classic Fall 2006
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
The X-Men #121 (5/79) - CGC Universal Grade NM/MT 9.8 with WHITE pages (story by Claremont, cover by Cockrum and Austin, and interior art by Byrne and Austin; first full appearance of Alpha Flight). At the time of this writing, the CGC Census reports that this copy is tied with 17 others at its grading tier, with no others grading higher (18 at 9.8), marking it as being tied as the highest graded example that CGC has reviewed. Weapon Alpha returns as the renamed Vindicator, leader of the Canadian mutant superhero team named Alpha Flight. First issue with a 40¢ cover price. A white paged stunner, undoubtedly superior to other copies at its tier with inferior page quality!
