A Tale Of A Comic Book Collector
The reason for it’s high value? The Incredible Hulk #181 happens to be the first full issue appearance of the highly popular character Wolverine. But 150Gs seems a bit excessive no matter how good its condition.

A Few Observations On Harry Potter
First, the most heroic character? Severus Snape.
Second, after the last book of the series (Deathly Hallows) was released J K Rowling announced that Professor Dumbledore was gay. Ok, so what? However, I made the point that I thought that Gary Oldman very subtly played the character of Sirius Black as though he was gay. It could just be me, but I got the impression that in the fifth film (The Order Of The Phoenix) Sirius had been in love (unrequitedly) with Harry’s father, James Potter. I could be wrong, but that’s what I think.
Lastly, I wondered just how much regular education these young witches and wizards received prior to enrolling at Hogwarts. I’m fairly certain that Hogwarts doesn’t teach any readin’, ‘ritin’, or ‘rithmetic. Maybe the magic in the students gets them through all that.
Any of the seven films will be very entertaining, but if you don’t know the story at all watch from the beginning (The Sorcerer’s Stone) because the subsequent films assume you have been watching from the first one on.
Of the films released thus far I’d say my favorite is the sixth film (The Half Blood Prince). I’m really looking forward to the final installment which will be released this July.
