'JLA/Avengers' revives x-overs.
It's finally happening (and this time they really mean it). The long anticipated JLA/Avengers
crossover arrives this fall, and the anticipation has fans all
nostalgic for those earlier Marvel/DC inter-company crossovers -
meaning you can expect a nice back-issue price boost.
DC SPECIAL SERIES #27
BATMAN VS THE INCREDIBLE HULK #1 (Reprint)
Which titles might see a nice halo effect from JLA/Avengers?
We lumped them into two camps: the old, mostly treasury-sized
"Pre-Crisis" crossovers and the 1990s "Post-Crisis" bunch that came hot
on the heels of the DC vs Marvel mini and the Amalgam titles.
The three big treasury editions - Superman vs the Amazing Spider-Man (1976), Marvel Treasury Editions #28 (Supes and Spidey aagin) and DC Special Series #27 (Batman vs Hulk) - are tough to find and in decent condition because of their size and often improper storage.
According to Stan Daniel, manager of
Capt Comics in Hoover, Ala., "The Superman/Spider-Man stuff will always
be in demand, but everyone overlooks Batman/Hulk. You can get it pretty
cheap right now if you can fid it. Also the X-Men/New Teen Titans
crossovers [Marvel and DC Presents the Uncanny X-Men and the New Teen Titans] keeps flying out of the store."
