What’s in store for 2011

In 2010 we saw the return of dr who and part 1 of the Harry Potter Finale. Both of which I enjoyed.  It’s also been a good year for comic hero movies. But the dust has barely settled on 2010 and yet here I am looking forward to another year of must-see movies and television programmes that have already got me very excited for the next twelve months. There is a superb line-up superhero movies to science fiction westerns, but which ones are the cream of the crop? Let me guide you through the minefield of buzz and into the most promising films that lie ahead.

I await with eager anticipation for upcoming X-Men, Green Lantern, Spiderman Reboot, Thor, Captain America and the First Avenger’ movies. In fact the comic book landscape looks pretty good. Lets just hope they live up to my expectation.

In addition, the superhero wildcard ‘The Green Hornet’ offers something a bit different. It promises interesting visuals, and the unconventional casting of Seth Rogan gives us hope for comedy capers.

Then there is Cowboys vs Aliens which I am also looking forward to…The title says it all. Cowboys AND aliens, it’s the golden combo! Gun-toting loners battling little green men is the B-movie dream. Only this B-movie has gone positively A-List, recruiting Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Sam Rockwell and Olivia Wilde to its madcap cause. I dare you to watch the trailer and tell me that this doesn’t look awesome… Here is a taster.

But what I am waiting for most of all is Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part II

The final Potter outing just pips it in the anticipation stakes against its most high-profile rival, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt1, as the teen vampire epic could yet go either way. Part 1 of the Potter finale did a great job of setting up the climatic battles we have all been looking forward to, even if the film itself suffered by feeling like a glorified prologue in the process. Even cinemagoers who can’t stand the franchise will be keen for this instalment to finally come, and go. Alas, we must wait a little longer for the trailer.

And then there is new series of Dr who and the contunuation of the event to look forward to.

Of course, I could be wrong on these. So if you think I’ve missed out or neglected any more exciting prospects, please enlighten me.


As I was putting second hand comics on my ebay shop I got to wondering, What is the most expensive second hand Comic???

Well I had a look and according to www.most-expensive.net/ it is “Action Comics no 1”, released in June 1938.  Can you believe that a copy of Action Comics #1 was sold by ComicConnect.com in March, 2010 for $1.5 million. Wow, I hear you say…

World's Most Expensive Comic Book - Action Comics #1

So why is it so expensive I hear you ask! Well, It is written by Jerry Siegel and illustrated by Joe Shuster, and contained our first 12-page glimpse of the iconic superhero, Superman.

It is valuable because not only it is the first appearance for superman but it is also the first comic that contains the first appearance of the modern superhero…

So next time some body says comic book readers are just nerds or geeks, just tell them about how much a little comic sold for recently…….
