Thanks for taking a look at this item from Grant's Comics! After being a comic fan since the age of two with Amazing Spider-Man #170, I decided to start up a social media account in 2020 which led to me creating one of the more popular comic boxes on the internet (check 'em out by searching for Grant's Comics unboxing videos!) and now I'm branching out into other storefronts. I buy and sell over 200,000 comics each and every year and in doing so and love spreading the enjoyment of comics. In a world with so much negativity, comics have always been a great escape; regardless if you’re reading them, collecting them, or both. Please check out my other listings and don't hesitate to ask any questions!
